Opossum (or some other marsupial marsupial) penis.
The devilish looking opossum penis!
Yes'm!Forked it is, as is true for other marsupials.Snakes and lizards also have forked penises, though they only use one fork at time and alternate. Believed to be a method of sperm preservation (use one now, save the other for the next girl to come along).For those who enjoy this topic or are simply really detailed biologists, see this post on Iceland's Penis Museum and their need >> http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2009/06/museum-seeks-penis-donor.html
Not sure why I immediately knew this was a possum penis because I've never seen one nor did I know they had a forked one. Must be instinct.
