"I offer you my hand, my heart, and a share of all my possessions" – these romantic words make perfect marriage proposal. But there is one creature who literally gives “hands” to the loved one.
Squids, Cephalopod mollusks – the slithery swimmers of the deep waters have romantic way in breeding. Males literally give their “hands” away to their ladies. They detach long tentacles loaded with sperm, let them swim towards the female and crawl into reproductive ducts of her body.
That’s it. With no further sweet talk male can swim away, hands will do the business. Happy days!
