The mighty Muscovy duck: Unlike mammals and turtles, for example, a male Muscovy duck uses lymph instead of blood to inflate his penis, which he can do in a third of a second, a new study shows. Also unlike mammals, the semen does not travel through an internal channel. Instead, it travels along an external groove that closes into a tunnel as lymph inflates the penis. The unusual anatomy and rapid eversion are probably the male duck's means of countering equally unusual female anatomy.
