This flamboyant beauty is Goniobranchus reticulatus. G. reticulatus’ main claim to fame is it’s sex-life- this Philippino native is not only hermaphroditic, it has a detachable penis! Imagine, if you will, a kind of sexual daisy-chain; a group of individuals with their female genitals receiving genetic material from its neighbour’s penis as they themselves use their penis to service the other neighbour. Ay carumba!
Once business time has concluded they shed their penis and grow a new one within 24 hours, all set in time for the next orgy!
