Restricted movement in anemonefish causes protandry so the species has better chances of surviving

discomfiting

This (hopefully) will be my first debate. This debate will be about 'Why are anemonefish protandrous hermaphrodites?' My position is that they are protandrous due to a natural selection in order to increase their odds of overall survival of the species. If you have a different opinion on why they are as they are, accept it as "con". Protandrous: "(of a hermaphrodite flower or animal) having the male reproductive organs come to maturity before the female."...

The Most Accurate Description of Consciousness

Aerogant

This is why every good emotion, has a bad counterpart. Everything good we do, has a back door for those who have worse intentions. When a planet is created, the core emits e...
