Maybe you are thinking that there is no way a male person can be very jealous of what insects can do. Maybe you are thinking, insects doesn’t have any kind of characteristic or talent that can make female person become a bit self-conscious.
The truth is, there is something and there is a special talent an insect can possess that can make male humans think again on what special talent they have, especially when we talk about male organs or penis.
A recent study about small water boatman of the species Micronecta scholtzi (see image above) says that the insect use its penis to perform a very loud mating call. Scientists call it the “singing penis”. Researchers says that – relative to its body size — it is the loudest animal on Earth.
Scientists from France and Scotland recorded the aquatic animal “singing” at up to 99.2 decibels, the equivalent of listening to a loud orchestra play while sitting in the front row. Imagine that kind of sound effect.
Researchers say the song is a courtship display performed to attract a mate.
Micronecta scholtzi are freshwater insects measuring just 2mm that are common across Europe.
