Hello, My name is Jessica Trevino
The area of research I chose to explore is hermaphroditism. By doing so I am able to inform the owners of both the basic and complex information of this rare mutation. In addition to being informative I hope to be a solution to those who continue to seek it. As proceeding through research I gained information needed to better help myself be the best parent I could be to my hermaphrodite.
REASON FOR TOPIC I was interested in completing this project over hemaphroditism because of my encounter with my hermaphrodite Magnum. Magnum opened up doors for me as well as others who were unaware of this rare case. Allowing myself to be informative, it is very likely I can teach other parents how to better their situation at home.
What Is A Hermaphrodite? Canine with both genders (boy & girl ) Called Freak Of Nature Mixed chromosom e pairing
Chromosomes Gender determined by the basic pairing. Females (XX) Males (XY) Carries genetic information from DNA molecules Found in the nucleus of a cell. Stringy Not visible by eye nor microscope
Hermaphrodite 25% of all cases are TRUE Hermaphrodites. – Small or enlarged penis. – Enlarged clitoris, everything aside appears normal. – Testes or ovatestes inside abdomen (does not descend in scrotal sacs) Pet lives with very few problems and rarely diagnosed. Female dogs do not have heat cycles and often can not reproduce.
Psuedohermaphrodite Chromosome pairing is accurate Gonads do not match the pairing. 75% of hermphrodites are actually psuedohermaphrodites. TIP : Gonads: organs responsible for the secretion of hormones. (Ovaries & Testicles ) A state in which an individual possesses the internal reproductive organs of one sex while exhibiting some of the external physical characteristics of the opposite sex. Also called false hermaphroditism.
