Best Animals Ever

Postby February Beetle » Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:34 pm

Hey biologists,

I am in my senior year and I need to pick an organismal biology topic to give a presentation on. I really like insects but I am trying to stay away from insects and spiders for this, because I want to explore a new topic. But I would still like it to be about invertebrates. I like all invertebrates but I really wanted to do it over SOCIAL invertebrates. I know there are social insects/spiders, do you guys know of any other social invertebrates that would be interesting to discuss? Just looking for some ideas to get me thinking about my topic :) thanks!

Squid and cuttlefish can be social, and the communication issues can be very entertaining.

"Female scissortail sergants allow potential mates to fertilize a small batch off eggs and then monitor their parenting skills to decide if they are good enough to deserve a full clutch."
