Well they have an anatomy, (head, neck and body) and they process a strange chemical called mitochondrian for energy.

Don't Believe the Hype

Actually sperm cells are produced in a process that is totally dependent on their location, for "generation". They do divide, but not "reproduce". They have 23 chromosomes, which is 1/2 the normal human number, (46) called a "gamete" (which combine with the 23 from the egg, an oocyte) to begin the process of replication. The first sperm cell that reaches the oocyte induces some chemical changes, which allows for one of it's buddies to get in, a bit later.

Yes - I happily stand corrected - Replicate - that's the word I wanted - not "reproduce". They contribute to replication.
Thank you for your big fat brains, you fabulous Bucky! Thumbsup

It's such a crap shoot, isn't it? I mean, so much can happen - mutations, anomalies, multiples. The early stages of cellular division are fascinating. Shy

Now I'm picturing hordes of gigantic mutant wigglers inhabiting the sewers of New York. Move over, C.H.U.D.!
