Men from Mars, Women from Venus, More Men from X 

Scientists have found a hybrid species of ant which may or may not (depending on your definition) have three sexes. It's pretty cool, mainly because it's totally new: if the female mates with a male from her own strain, she gives birth to queens. If she mates with a male from another, she has workers. Really a bloody strange system, but why the hell not. How many sexes did the Trafalmadorians say we needed to make a baby?
