This ridiculously endowed anadactyl is one of the most impressive, and at times intimidating and dangerous, animals on Gaia. The males incredibly muscular deep black genitals are almost or even just as long as their bodies. Males use their impressive genitals to construct their bowers, paired towers of branches propped against each other between 5 and 6m tall and spaced between 3 and 4m apart. Males display to females by standing between these two towers, raising their genitals so that they are vertical and holding them up for as long as possible. Pairs stay together until they've raised their offspring have reached maturity, at which points the parents separate and will find new partners next mating season.
The males use their genitals to defend themselves and their mates and offspring from predators, hitting large predators and tossing and even killing small predators. This behaviour along with an aggressive and defensive temperament makes them a danger to humans, especially during the mating season. Though rare, attacks on people have happened and extensive safety programs are in place in cities with large populations of M. graviterque.
