#2 Strange Egg Laying Habit of Zebra Finches
Have you seen any species getting attracted to an unattractive partner? Well, we all know that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder but this may not be true in the case of Zebra Finches.
Usually, birds that mate with unattractive partners lay fewer and smaller eggs as compared to other species.
But this particular species of bird, known for their voice and red eyes seem to show opposite traits. They lay more and larger eggs in order to compensate for their partner’s unattractiveness.
The larger the egg the more nutrients it will get. At least there are some species where being ugly has its own benefits.
