I am starting a series of drawings about sex-gender diversity in animals compared to humans, hoping to make visible that also in nature this plurality emerges in terms of bodies. :)
"Caracol is the common name for gastropod molluscs with a spiral shell, and there are marine snails (sometimes called snails), freshwater snails and terrestrial snails.
The snails are hermaphrodites, they produce both spermatozoa and ovules. Must be attached because they can not self-pollinate. They are equipped with a male reproductive organ and the corresponding receptive organ. Others, such as the apple snails or Ampullariidae, are female or male.
The garden snails, in pairs, inseminate each other, to internally fertilize their eggs. Generally, in the spring and autumn of the temperate zones, while the weather remains hot and humid. Copulation is usually done at night and lasts on average between four and seven hours.
After this complex procession, a spermatophore (sperm-containing structure) is transferred from the male genital organ of one individual to the female of the other individual, where the sperm will be released with the subsequent fertilization of the ovules. "(Wikipedia)
