藤壶没羞没臊的风流生活

Barnacles Go To Unbelievable Lengths To Hook Up | Deep Look

《微观深望》
Finding a date is hard enough in San Francisco.
在旧金山想找个对象 已经够难的了
But it’s especially tricky when you’re stuck to a rock in the middle of the bay.
如果还被困在海湾中部的一块石头上的话 那更是难上加难
Still, acorn barnacles don’t get discouraged,
不过 橡子藤壶可没有灰心
these crusty little animals actually have a pretty wild sex life.
这些带着硬壳的小家伙们 性生活其实很没羞没臊呢
At low tide, each one is sealed up inside its own miniature fortress,
在退潮时 每一只橡子藤壶都把自己封闭在它小小的堡垒中
shielded by a ring of armored plates.
被一圈装甲壳板保护着
The two central plates press together to form a water-tight seal,
两块中心板紧压在一起 构成一个不透水的密闭空间
so they don’t dry out in the open air.
以保证它们不会在露天环境里变干
They’re ready and waiting for the tide to rise,
它们准备万全 等待着潮水上涨
so they can get down to business.
这样就可以开始干正事儿了
But first they need to freshen up a bit.
不过首先 得让自己看起来精神一点儿
The barnacle unfurls eight pairs of delicate feathery legs called cirri,
藤壶展开了 八对名为蔓肢的羽毛状细腿
which they use to absorb oxygen from the water.
用它们来汲取水中的氧气
The legs filter out plankton and debris churned up by the waves,
这些腿会过滤在海浪中猛烈翻滚的浮游生物和动物残骸
bringing the catch inside to the mouth.
把捕获到的东西送到嘴里
They may not look like it from the outside,
从外面看它们可能不太像
but beneath their shell,
但在其外壳之下
it’s easier to see that barnacles are crustaceans
更容易看出 藤壶是与螃蟹和虾同属的
related to crabs and shrimp.
甲壳纲生物
After a nice meal, it’s ready for some action.
饱餐一顿之后 它准备好要开始行动了
The little barnacle lets loose the longest penis of any animal,
这只小藤壶 亮出它那长度足以傲视任何动物的阴茎
relative to its body size of course,
当然 是相对其体型而言
stretching up to eight times the length of the barnacle itself.
将它伸长至自己体长的8倍
And this penis has skills.
这根东西可不简单
It can taste and smell,
它有味觉 有嗅觉
and the tip can feel around,
而且其尖端可以四处摸索
probing to see which neighbors have ripe eggs inside.
探知周围哪个同伴体内 有成熟的卵子
When it finds what it’s looking for,
当藤壶找到拥有成熟卵子的同伴
the barnacle delivers sperm to fertilize the eggs.
就会向它输送精子 以使其卵子受精
Barnacles aren’t exactly prudes,
藤壶在性方面可不是保守派
pretty much everyone is fair play,
交配上几乎都是雨露均沾
because they’re all hermaphrodites, simultaneously male and female.
因为它们都是雌雄同体 既是雄性 又是雌性
Sometimes it’s one-on-one,
有时 是一对一做不可描述的事
sometimes more.
有时 就不止了
Barnacles are nurturing parents, too.
藤壶还是很会养育后代的家长呢
They hold on to their fertilized eggs
它们紧紧抱着自己的受精卵
and protect them until they hatch.
保护着它们 直到它们孵化出来
These cuties are their baby larvae called nauplii.
这些小可爱就是藤壶们名为无节幼体的幼年体
This is the young barnacles’ chance for adventure.
现在正是小藤壶们出发去冒险的好时机
They roam the sea searching for food and growing.
它们漫游在大海中 一边寻找食物一边成长
If they survive long enough,
如果小家伙们命够长
the barnacle larvae mature into cyprids.
这些藤壶无节幼体会长成为腺介幼体
At this stage the barnacle doesn’t eat.
这个生命阶段的藤壶不吃东西
The cyprid’s only mission is to find the ideal spot
它唯一的任务 就是在自己饿死之前
to glom onto before it starves.
找到一个可以附着的理想地点
Having survived the trials of youth,
经历过青春的试炼后
the barnacle settles in.
藤壶便安顿了下来
Now it’s time to “get to know” the neighbors.
现在是时候“认识认识”邻居们了
