10 Examples of Oviparous Animals

Among the wide group of animals that exist on our planet there are different types of reproduction. One of them is oviparity. Oviparous animals are those that reproduce through eggs . In oviparity, the reproduction of the new being takes place inside an egg laid by the female of the species. So oviparous animals are all those that are born from an egg that is deposited by the mother in an external environment, so that the offspring complete its development before hatching.

Oviparous animals can be classified into two large groups, those with external fertilization and those with internal fertilization.

Types of fertilization of oviparous:

Oviparous internal fertilization.- These are those animals whose eggs are fertilized before being “laid” by the female, that is, fertilization occurs inside the female’s body before they are laid, in the case of the eggs of birds and reptiles as well as other oviparous ones.

Oviparous external fertilization.- It is the fertilization method that some oviparous animals such as fish and some amphibians have, the females depositing their eggs in environments such as aquatic so that later these are fertilized by the male’s sperm, which is disseminated in the environment in which these eggs are found.

There are many oviparous animals among fish, reptiles, amphibians, arthropods (insects, arachnids, etc.) and mollusks (all birds have this type of reproduction), that is, most animals. As for current mammals, only the platypus and the echidna have oviparous reproduction, being that mammals are the group of animals that mostly have viviparous reproduction.

Among the different animals whose reproduction is oviparous, there are those who lay few or many eggs, which can be one or a few eggs at a time, as in some birds, tens and even hundreds as in the case of turtles, or hundreds and even thousands as in the case of fish, amphibians, insects and arachnids.
