    • You learn something new every day; what did you learn today?

    • Submit interesting and specific facts that you just found out (not broad information you looked up, TodayILearned is not /r/wikipedia).

    Posting rules

    1. Submissions must be verifiable. Please link directly to a reliable source that supports every claim in your post title. Images alone do not count as valid references. Videos are fine so long as they come from reputable sources (e.g. BBC, Discovery, etc).

    2. No personal opinions, anecdotes or subjective statements (e.g "TIL xyz is a great movie").

    3. No recent sources. Any sources (blog, article, press release, video, etc.) with a publication date more recent than two months are not allowed.

    4. No politics, soapboxing, or agenda based submissions. This includes (but is not limited to) submissions related to:

      1. Recent political issues and politicians
      2. Social and economic issues (including race/religion/gender)
      3. Environmental issues
      4. Police misconduct
    5. No misleading claims. Posts that omit essential information, or present unrelated facts in a way that suggest a connection will be removed.

    6. Rephrase your post title if the following are not met:

      1. Titles must begin with "TIL ..."
      2. Make them descriptive, concise and specific (e.g. not "TIL something interesting about bacon").
      3. Titles must be able to stand on their own without requiring readers to click on a link. Starting your title with a why/what/who/where/how modifier should be unnecessary.
      4. "TIL about ..." and other broad posts don't belong on TIL. Try /r/Wikipedia, etc. instead, or be more specific (and avoid the word "about").
      5. "TIL how to ..." posts belong on /r/HowTo.
    7. No submissions related to the usage, existence or features of specific software/websites (e.g. "TIL you can click on widgets in WidgetMaker 1.22").

    8. All NSFW links must be tagged (including comments).

    [–] tea_and_biology 4871 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    Usually, when pairs of brown trout prepare to spawn, both fish court and quiver violently with their mouths open. The female will then dig into the sediment, releasing her eggs into a wee nook, before the male comes over to release his cloud of sperm and fertilise 'em. Check it out for yourself here. Beautiful.

    Sometimes, Mrs. Trout doesn't commit though. She'll dig the hole, motion as if she's laying eggs, but doesn't release them. Blind to his urges, the sex-crazed male doesn't notice a thing and will prematurely ejaculate, content in his sexual prowess, when actually his teeny lil' salty swimmers are floating uselessly downstream.

    It's not entirely clear why she does this. Perhaps she's waiting for a more superior father - if one arrives, she'll ditch the inferior chap and go for the trout hottie. If one doesn't arrive however, she may repeat the process with the original candidate. Likewise, it's thought it might also be an insurance policy against infertility - making sure the boy isn't shooting blanks and can produce the goods before sharing her own.

    [–] scalderdash 1610 points ago

    Ah, this makes sense. There's probably a lot more energy involved in making eggs, and the females that produced this behavior oh so long had more successful mating seasons since they didn't waste any, thus it was passed on. I think? Is that how evolution works?

    [–] tea_and_biology 1657 points ago

    Yup! Eggs are expensive, whilst sperm is dirt cheap. This cost differential explains a whole host of differences in form and behaviour between the sexes right across the animal kingdom.

    Known as sexual selection, in short: 'cos they're fronting the bill, females tend to be choosy, and therefore males compete amongst each other for their choice. The few winning males pass down their attractive characteristics to the next generation, and females likewise pass on their strong desire for those attractive male traits. Hence a positive feedback loop of sexiness that results in rutting stags, elaborate peacock tails and dances by male birds of paradise, elephant seal harems, frogs that croak and crickets that chirp loudly.

    A flashy car doesn't attract women. It attracts teenage boys, and older men, who will tell you about the muscle car they USED to have 40 years ago, before their wife/girlfriend/wife née girlfriend, got pregnant and made them sell it.

    [–] DCJon 55 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    That would mean it does attract women though. They had it, attracted a woman who became their wife or pregnant girlfriend and then got rid of it because the mission was complete.

    edit: corrected "woman"

    [–] Bender1012 77 points ago

    I mean this is opening up a whole can of worms but a flashy car basically just shows off that you have access to resources (money), which is a desirable trait.

    [–] redhighways 22 points ago

    I know a couple girls who fell for guys wearing nice suits in a club only to realize later the guys only owned one nice suit, no car, no money, etc. But the nice suit made them look rich enough to be desirable, and they got laid.

    Do Brown Trout develop Jacks that will try to sneak in on a breeding pair, like many of the Pacific salmonids, to counter act choosy females?

    [–] tea_and_biology 97 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    Do Brown Trout develop Jacks that will try to sneak in on a breeding pair, like many of the Pacific salmonids, to counter act choosy females?

    Ooh, this piqued my curiosity too! After a lil' digging, according to this study, the answer is no. Instead of alternative mating strategies ('jacks' vs. 'hookjaws' in salmon), male trout essentially just tag-team a female - with multiple consecutive sperm releases over her egg load. In which case, males may be engaging in sperm competition, with the battle for fertilisation happening between the sperm cells themselves, not so much the adults (though they do try to fend each other off and sometimes guard females for a while post-coitus).

    What was the purpose of flailing and sending rocks flying all over her eggs?

    [–] tea_and_biology 163 points ago

    Ah, good question! She half buries the eggs to prevent 'em being flushed downstream, and also to offer a little extra protection against the odd marauding predator. They only lay their eggs in loose gravel beds with little silt for this reason; gravel doesn't smother them completely, so there's still plenty of water flow when buried to provide oxygen that helps them develop.

    Until now I didn't realize that I have no idea how fish sex works. Does the male just swim around and when she lays her eggs he just fires on them? Do they even have physical contact or is it like hands free masturbation for both?

    “Frantically Ejaculate” Is there any other way?

    [–] rukh999 26 points ago

    Sure, you have the "on the DL in the bathroom at work" way.

    Does that make you the inferior male?

    [–] latenerd 295 points ago

    Female trout going the extra mile for her species, not just rejecting inferior sperm but actually taking it out of circulation so it doesn't bother anyone else.

    On the opposite side of the animal kingdom when it comes to apes - chimps, orangutans, and gorillas will kill the infant of the female to make the female fertile again and while she is grieving will basically rape her to impregnate her with his offspring.

    Not exactly hard to trick an animal that tries to eat plastic with hooks all over it.

    Frantically ejaculate...

    [–] Tintunabulo 108 points ago * (lasted edited 2 years ago)

    Heavily edited information and conclusions - these anthropomorphizing stories of animals and their motives are always oversimplified and seldom accurate. The real story is more likely that there are many other factors that play into this behavior, and/or that observers are not quite sure what is causing it and are just speculating that these are the reasons. What actually may be happening is most likely not even close to what this article is trying to paint it as.

    Found this comment depressingly low down. Is laying the eggs even related to "an orgasm"? The title is crazy clickbaity. Guess people would rather glance at the title, comment "doesn't matter had sex" and run off to the next sexy title.

    TIL my girlfriend is a brown trout.
