The Weird Sisters

They just keep getting weirder. The “they” I’m referring to are the bdelloid rotifers — small transparent animals that live in damp places such as puddles, or patches of moss. Among evolutionists, these animals have something of a cult following, because they have a lifestyle that is not supposed to exist. As far as anyone can tell, the bdelloid rotifers are ancient asexuals: they appear to have been living entirely without sex for more than 85 million years. And each time we learn more details of their lifestyle, the wackier it becomes.
La columna de Olivia Judson en el NY Times es de lo más divertida.
Y su libro Dr. Tatianas Sex Advise to all Creation: The definitive guide to the Evolucionary Biology of Sex, es muy bueno y gracioso. Un poco de background para Green Porn
