        The Mating Game

        Most romantic gestures that help to solidify relationships between people would be useless between individuals of another species. Take the burying beetle, for example. This insect prefers to court his mate underground with the carcass of a dead rodent for ambiance. Amazingly, female burying beetles can't seem to get enough of this sort of treatment. In this interactive feature from the Evolution web site, take a lighthearted but informative look at the reproductive strategies of this and many other fascinating creatures.
