I have five working stomachs, I’m a higher being!"
Tony Harrison (via anoutrage)
Five stomachs but multihexagonal private parts… as a biologist, the discrepancy in symmetry worries me. Unless perhaps he has a sixth stomach that doesn’t work, perhaps clogged with alcohol-soaked breakfast cereal. It wouldn’t surprise me.
this detail has bothered me as well. however, pentagonal symmetry is a more likely body plan - even though he’s an alien - which would make his penis the aberration. that could explain his need to brag about it.
Yes, but doesn’t he have six tentacles as well?
good point… well, we know that he’s radially symmetrical. the six-rayed starfish, Leptasterias polaris - as far as i can tell - still has the same pentameral symmety as the regular ol’ five armed kinds. it’s hard to be sure though, since all starfish larvae are bilaterally symmetrical and only obtain radial symmetry as adults. did he start out as a larva?

Tiger Moth - Creatonotos gangis
What you see in this photo is a male of Creatonotos gangis (Arctiidae), a species of Asian moth, showing his expanded pheromone diffuser structures at the tip of the abdomen (called coremata and androconia). The four coremata are reversible, each when inflated may be longer than the abdomen.
Females pheromonally attract males from long distances, however, when the male is close enough to begin his courtship, he inflates his coremata with air or hemolymph to evert externally from the abdomen and fans pheromones of his own towards the female.
This species of moth is found over much of south-east Asia, as well as in Australia.

Are those pheromone diffuser structures at the tip of your abdomen or are you just happy to see me?
