PostSubject: Miaxi Question   Sun Jul 24, 2016 7:57 am

This question isn't very important, but I've been wondering about it and thought that I might as well ask. Are all miaxi female? I don't find anything wrong with single sex races, but I couldn't find anything that explains how they could exist without males. Is the number of males so small that miaxi are referred to as girls, or do they just reproduce differently?


Oh, and sorry if I posted this in the wrong place

I don't think there's a Miaxi subforum at the moment, so its fine.

Far as I'm aware with normal bees, they don't need males. The queen just...lays eggs.

You're sorta right. The queen does lay eggs, but the eggs have to be fertilized to become workers. Unfertilized eggs become males. Maybe it's the reverse for miaxi?

They can clone themselves. Self replication isn't really impossible, seen that there are ants that have no males, yet still function and reproduce. There was one article I read (that I forgot) that talks about how they do that.

The male clown fish are herms that can assume the role of the female if there aren't any nearby.

Time to blow your mind talking about a very real wasp parasitoid that fits right in with Felarya's high density female environment. It's called Wolbachia and it is amazing.

If there was an analogue for a real-life excuse for the male:female ratio in Felarya, Wolbachia is basically it; also the best response to "unnatural" debates as this'll give whole new meanings to current socio-political debates on gender.

Lmao so hard.

But yes I'm pretty sure it states int he Miaxi article they are like Harpies: an all female race. Let's take a look in the wiki! *Checks the Felarya Wiki which is in the Quick Access on his phone for moments such as this* Wow that was a fun re-read! I forgot how cool the Miaxi are! But I didn't see anything confirming it one way or the other so it's up to you really. Honestly I cruise on my own vibe using the settings rule's loosely, especially in moments like this when you really can't give a definitive answer.

Ok, thanks! Even though it can get confusing, I love how much the reader is involved in how Felarya works

Blew my mind, but for a different reason. I thought Wolbachia was fictional, made up for Metal Gear Solid V.

It's actually the other way round. Well, at least for bees, which is what they taught to me in biology at school. Unfertilized eggs become workers, which is a large part of the reason why workers are infertile, while the fertilized eggs become males. During their development, workers are fed royal jelly for a while at first, then fed some more regular nourishment I don't remember the name of. This is important, because, if the Queen happens to die, the last batch of workers are all fed with royal jelly all the way till they are born, the whole lot of them becoming queens instead of workers and starting a battle royale to be the last queen standing and take control of the swarm. I bet there are lots of ideas taking form within your heads right now XD

My, that was an interesting read. It sure sounds like it could change a lot of things if Wolbachia could infect and alter bigger mammals. Same as that mind-controlling fungus XD

Weird, this is what I found

"The life cycle of all insects, including honey bees, begins with eggs. During the winter season, a queen forms a new colony by laying eggs within each cell inside a honeycomb. Fertilized eggs will hatch into female worker bees, while unfertilized eggs will become drones or honey bee males. In order for one colony to survive, the queen must lay fertilized eggs to create worker bees, which forage for food and take care of the colony.

Each colony contains only one queen, which mates at an early age and collects more than 5 million sperm. A honey bee queen has one mating flight and stores enough sperm during the mating flight to lay eggs throughout her life. When a queen can no longer lay eggs, new queens become responsible for mating and laying honey bee eggs.

Honey bee eggs measure 1 to 1.5 mm long, about half the size of a single grain of rice. When the queen lays her eggs, she moves through the comb, closely examining each cell before laying her eggs. The process of laying one egg takes only a few seconds, and a queen is capable of laying up to 2,000 honey bee eggs within a single day.

A young queen lays her eggs using an organized pattern, placing each egg next to others within a cell. Queens begin laying their eggs in the center of the cell frame, so workers can place honey, royal jelly and other foods for larvae on the outer edges. However, as the queen ages, she lays fewer eggs in a less organized pattern.

When the queen lays a honey bee egg, it becomes attached to the cell by a mucous strand. During the first stage of development, the digestive system, nervous system and outer covering are formed. After three days, the eggs will hatch into larvae, which will be fed by worker honey bees with honey, royal jelly and other liquids from plants. These honey bee larvae have no legs, eyes, antennae or wings; they resemble a grain of rice with a small mouth. They will eat and grow into adult workers, queens or drones."

Guess that either my memory or my education switched what came out of which egg. The other parts still seem to go well with the rest of what I said.
