    Jeez...

    "During mating the smaller male often jumps on the back of the larger female. Miscalculating the jump may mean the male becomes a meal. If the jump was successful, the pair mate and during copulation the female may turn and devour the male's head. The body of the male is capable of completing the mating, when complete the female will finish eating the male."

    Lol, I once saw something on Discovery where a male had his head bitten off, but he was still doing it.

    its beacause all the nerves for controlling the body are in the males head, so when the female rip's off his head, his body is still doing because his head hasent told him to stop yet! in this way the female ensures fertilization. fun isent it?
