Oh. Well i guess i'll need to look into that deeper. It still doesn't make sense to me, but you're probably right. Thanks for the help.

No it depends on the shape of the sperm which results in inferitle. Female eggs howeever are the same shape.

Oh, so how does the sperm change shape?, are the tiger and lion sperm different shapes?
A conclusion is only where we refuse to continue thinking.

When I mean the shape changes I mean the shape of the proteins that activate fertilization. If you were to look at tiger and lion sperm their proteins would be differnt. Albeit not to different, i think. I'll get back on this.

Both will be rare if we exploit them. Balancing nature--and its components will maintain such.
