Question: Can a hermaphrodite produce sperm and eggs?

Hermaphrodites can either reproduce by virtue of self-fertilization or they can mate with a male and use the male derived sperm to fertilize their eggs. While virtually the entire progeny that is produced by self-fertilization is hermaphroditic, half of the cross-progeny is male.

Do human hermaphrodites produce sperm and eggs?

In humans and many other animal species, individuals are typically either males or females. The males produce the sperm, and the females produce the eggs. The hermaphrodite never develops an organ for delivering sperm into other worms. And so it can only use its sperm to fertilize its own eggs.

Can hermaphrodites fertilize their own eggs?

Because most hermaphrodites do have to date. In other words, they cant simply fertilize themselves. When these molecular calling cards hail from different animals, the proteins come together and allow fertilization to occur.

Can hermaphrodite humans have babies with themselves?

Hermaphrodites can either reproduce by virtue of self-fertilization or they can mate with a male and use the male derived sperm to fertilize their eggs. While virtually the entire progeny that is produced by self-fertilization is hermaphroditic, half of the cross-progeny is male.

Can someone be born with both genders?
