Deep Look - Newt Sex: Buff Males! Writhing Females! Cannibalism! (Video)
Isn’t mother nature amazing? Just look at what these creatures go through, in order to mate! Not only do they show little to no concern for the lives, but they transform from land dwelling creatures to aquatic creatures and back again.
From the youtube description,
Every winter, California newts leave the safety of their forest burrows and travel as far as three miles to mate in the pond where they were born. Their mating ritual is a raucous affair that involves bulked-up males, writhing females and a little cannibalism.
