How to use offspring in a sentence?

  1. Brendan Zietsch:

    Because siblings share 50 % of their genetics, if there was a genetic underpinning of offspring sex determination we would see an association between siblings with regard to offspring sex, however, siblings did not tend to have offspring of the same sex -- the probability of having, say, a girl, did not depend on whether one's siblings had a girl or a boy.

  2. Karl Marx:

    Capital is money, capital is commodities.. By virtue of it being value, it has acquired the occult ability to add value to itself. It brings forth living offspring, or at the least, lays golden eggs.

  3. Washington Tapia:

    SOLAR STORMS MIGHT BE CAUSING GRAY WHALES TO GET LOST The famed Galapagos Conservancyas giant tortoise named Diego fathered 40 percent of all tortoises on Espanola Island in Galapagos Conservancyas. ( San Diego Zoo) The 175-pound Diego is a Chelonoidis hoodensis, a species only found in the wild on the island ofEspanola, according to AFP. He reportedly fathered an estimated 800 offspring as of 2016. He was brought to the U.S. between 1928 and 1933 and placed in a breeding center on the Galapagos Conservancyas island of Santa Cruz, after his species was determined to be critically endangered in the 1960s, according to San Diego Zoo. Based on the results of the last censusconducted at the end of 2019and all the data available since 1960 both of the island and its tortoise population... the conclusion was that the island has sufficient conditions to maintain the tortoise population, which will continue to grow normally even without any new repatriation of juveniles.

  4. Cervantes:

    No fathers and mothers think their own children ugly, and this self-deceit is yet stronger with respect to the offspring of the mind.

  5. Foteini Tseliou:

    Creating a safe environment for highly mobile families could include minimizing in-house hazards, preserving good housing standards with adequate ventilation to safeguard from respiratory problems, and maintaining a network that can support them through the stress of residential moves both on them and their offspring.
