Reproduction Bacteria reproduce asexually using binary fission in prokaryotic cells and mitosis in others. In both processes the goal is for the cell to split and form two cells. Grasshoppers reproduce by laying eggs. These eggs are then fertilized inside the female grasshopper. The shell that protects the egg contains a thermal port that allows sperm to gain access to the egg. This can be transferred in liquid or by being injected into the female. Fish reproduce also by laying eggs. Some eggs are very simple and do not contain any yoke to nourish the egg. They are a female gamete which is covered by a gelatinous coating that allows sperm and other nutrients to enter. This coating also allows waste to leave. This is normal in marine fish. Other fish such as freshwater fish contain a large yoke. The reproduction occurs when the female lays the eggs in a group and the mate swims over and drops sperm over the eggs.

Unformatted text preview: Once fertilized the eggs are left to hatch on their own. Bears reproduce sexually much like humans. The female produces an egg and through mating with a male bear the sperm will be present inside the female bear and will swim to meet up with the egg. Once the egg is fertilized it implants in the uterus and develops into an embryo. This embryo will turn into a fetus. References Bailey, R. (n.d.). About.com Biology .
