Just Cool: Ninja Slug Fires Love Darts To Get Mates In The Mood

The World Wildlife Fund is hailing the discovery of more than 123 exotic new species in the biodiverse rainforest of the ‘Heart of Borneo’. Among them are an enormous stick insect measuring almost 2-feet-long, a lungless frog, and the incredible “Ninja Slug”.

Actually, perhaps they should just call him “Cupid”.

Scientists have discovered that this unusual invertebrate uses chalky “love darts”, made of calcium carbonate, in courtship. The tiny harpoons pierce and inject hormone into mates, and may increase the chances of reproduction. Also of interest: The slug sports a tail that’s three times the length of its head, which it wraps around its 1.6-inch-long (4 cm) body when inactive as if like a cat.
