Diverse Families in Nature

For those idiots who think that only one male/one female relationships are "natural" here are some examples of diverse relationships in the animal kingdom.  Science fiction writers may also find these, and other such examples, useful in constructing alien species.  I get a lot of my ideas from science and nature.  It makes for aliens who are nothing like humans in furry (or scaly, or whatever) suits.

Read "Fish of the North"

I've written some nonfiction for Torn World about notable fish in the North.  Some of these have already been mentioned in stories.  There are analogs of Terran fish (trout, salmon, etc.) and some that are unique to Torn World (glacier pike, other-fish).  It begins with "Fish of the North: Overview" and continues with "Fish of the North: Whiskerfish."  More will be forthcoming.
