Bears are among the least productive mammals in North America. In theory, a male and female black bear born this year — if they breed as soon as they reach sexual maturity and as often as possible, and if all their offspring survive to do the same — could in the space of ten years have grown to a population of 15 bears assuming none died. Grizzly bears are even less productive: in 10 years, a male a female born today could grow to a population of only eight. By comparison, a pair of white-tailed deer could produce more than 1, descendants in 10 years. Bears generally live solitary lives, but can be found together during mating season. The average breeding age for female black bears is 3.

Is the world finally waking up to intersex rights?
Haute Butch is one of a number of new design houses targeting the trans, butch, and androgynous dressers. The marauding, man-eating Titans are mutated, androgynous beasts that have no need to feed but love to kill. Nor has there been a lack of a strange taste in partners, most notably the case of the androgynous Mrs. The androgynous Le Smoking suit brought empowerment to women that was once only associated with men. After these, the androgynous being, called the Venus of Arles, is scarcely worthy of being mentioned. Here devout worshippers believe that the androgynous God of fertility, or Nature, still manifests itself to the faithful. For the androgynous woman despises every approach to coquetry, as she despises all the other insignia of feminine servitude. Once before when he bore Sleipner with the giant horse Svadilfare, Loke had revealed his androgynous nature. It does not appear that the cult of the Greek androgynous deities entered seriously into the religious life of the people.
My life without gender: 'Strangers are desperate to know what genitalia I have'
Jack was born with both male and female anatomy, with ovarian and testicular tissue, and genitals that could belong to either a boy or a girl. He has one of at least 40 congenital variations, known collectively as disorders of sexual development DSD , or intersex traits. But the doctors took that away from us without any explanation. The British charity DSD Families estimates that around babies born in this country each year need investigations before their sex is assigned. Juliet was referred to a consultant at the local hospital, followed by meetings with geneticists and neonatologists, blood tests and an amniocentesis. But actually, he is just a normal child. Bouncing around the living room of their home in the West Midlands, Jack looks completely ordinary. With mousy, curly hair, a runny nose and a toothy smile, he clambers over Juliet and chucks a green football at me, oblivious to what his mother is telling me.
If you plan on keeping male and female bettas together the two most common ways are by keeping 1 male and 1 female. Or by keeping 1 male in a sorority of females. It should be noted that in both cases, this should not be attempted by a beginner, but rather by an experienced fish keeper. And of course, remember, that while it is possible to keep male and female bettas together, in most cases, they will be happier in separate tanks. If you plan on keeping a single male and female betta fish together then you need to make sure that the tank is not only big, but also has a lot of length 40 Gallons or more. This will help your female stay away from your male if she needs to and reduce the chance of aggression between both fish. As well as keeping them in a large tank you should also add LOTS of plants and hiding places. Your tank should be thick with vegetation that will constantly break your bettas line of sight.
