A Question about Gametes

Post by Tarux » Wed Jan 08, 2020 3:32 am

I don't know if this has been answered before, but i've been wrapping my head around this dilemma for quite a while so here i go asking anyway.

So im trying to develop this organism, and so far its been going good. The organism is capable of surviving and thriving, and the gametes are capable of being fertilized.

That is except for one problem which has been bothering me for a while. When the two male and female gametes fuse, it is the male "sperm" organism that ultimately bears the fertilized egg instead of the female. I have been trying to reverse this for i don't know how long.

So my question is: Exactly what determines which gamete gets fertilized? Is it just purely random?

Welcome back~

It is not random. Depends on the mass of gametes.
