July 1, 2014

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In a tributary of Tennessee’s Duck River, there lives a small fish that seems to have mastered the art of seduction. Because the females of the species prefer strong fathers, males use small yellow knobs on their fins that look like eggs to lure potential mates.
