In truth, there have been reported cases where the female praying mantis does NOT eat the head of her mate post-mating.

The common cuttlefish male has two mating strategies -- fight over the females, or disguise themselves as females and sneak in -- the females pick their mates in the end though, and someone actually did paternity testing on baby cuttles and turns out the sneaky males are more successful.

 

(I hope a mating related fact is acceptable!)

Hmm, I could spew some wolf facts all day, including how alpha wolves are able to make it so other female wolves in the pack are not in heat (as only alphas breed).

2. Mares want privacy when they start foaling. They will actually delay the birth until humans are not watching, which is usually in the middle of the night when most foals are born.

I love horses. :wub:

2: There are many types of birds that mate for life. This includes but is not limited to: Albatross (some types), Swans (most commonly known!), the Bald Eagle, and even large parrots like the Scarlet Macaw! This is often known as Pair Bonding and can also happen between intelligent species of birds (think parrots) and their owners!

There is a beetle known as a maquech beetle (Zopherus chilensis) which is used as a living brooch.  This originated from the Mayans and today, you can still buy them in certain parts of Mexico.

Corn snakes, as well as many other colubrids, can retain a males sperm for over a year. This means that if they bred the previous year, and there are no males around the next year, she can fertilize herself with the leftovers from last year.

There are several types of parasites that can change the behaviour of their hosts significantly. For instance, the Toxoplasma species, which reproduces in cats but also infects rodents, will influence the rodents to act more recklessly (that way they're more likely to get eaten by a cat, the target host).
