Top 10 Mammals With High Sperm Count

All embryos of mammals are set to become female. The existence of a single gene on the Y chromosome persuades the development of the testes in an embryo. This makes the embryo become a male.

 

1. Pig:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 60-80 billion

Description: Sexual Development in boars (male pigs) is triggered by the Y chromosome and the androgen. At between 20 and 40 days old, Y chromosomes allow germ cells and the male reproductive tract to divide. It takes about 5 weeks for sperm to produce and 2 weeks to go through epidermis.

 

2. Zebra:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 40 billion

Description: By 48 months, Zebras ejaculate this amount of sperm. Spermatozoa first appears at 31 months.

 

3. Donkey:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 14.5 billion

Description: When a female horse is mating with a male donkey (jack), a mule is conceived. When a female donkey mates with a horse stallion, then a hiney is conceived. Jacks are the ones that have larger testicles than stallions. It also takes 5-30 minutes for a jack to complete the breeding act.

 

4. Horse:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 11 billion

Description: Poor health causes a stallion (male horse) to have poor semen levels. The sex glands are not required to provide seminal fluids. The vesicular glands are the most difficult to palpate because they are shrunken before teasing.

 

5. Bull:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 5-10 billion

Description: Bull sperm is made up of various substances such the acid Taurine. This should not be confused with the Taurine in drinks. This in fact is artificially made.

 

6. Buffalo:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 3.4 billion

Description: This animal is non-terrestrial and very social. Mating season is during the rainy times of the year. The first calves arrive at 5 years with 15 month breaks between births.

 

7. Ram:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 3 billion

Description: Rams are usually neglected but are important members of the herd. Rams hit puberty at 5 to 7 months and are already 50-70% of the adult average weight. Interestingly enough, sperm production takes 49 days.

 

8. Goat:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 2-3 billion

Description: Pregnancies mostly result in 1 or 2 (twins) goats (kids). Many breads’ pregnancies now also result in multiple kids. They are matched during the fall (once yearly) during the height of their reproduction.

 

9. Dog:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 2 billion

Description: Male dogs get sperm at 7-10 months. They only get viable sperm at one year after birth. After 5 years of age (sometime 18 months) the prime age has passed. This means that the sperm count has decreased.

 

10. Human:

Sperm/Ejaculation: 200-500 million

Description: Interestingly enough, males do not have as much semen in their testicles as their counterparts. Of 200-500 million sperms in one ejaculation, only one or two actually fertilize an egg.
