"Se ela te fala assim, com tantos rodeios, é pra te seduzir e te ver buscando o sentido daquilo que você ouviria displicentemente. Se ela te fosse direta, você a rejeitaria."

male mouthbrooding jawfish — such as the mottled (seen in the third photo with spikes on the side of its head from a fireworm attack), the yellowhead, the banded, and the cardinalfish seen here —  use their mouths to protect their eggs until the fry hatch. 

mouthbrooding fish are able to produce smaller numbers of offspring with a higher chance of survival than species that offer no broodcare. the males, however, are not able to eat during this period of incubation (which can last anywhere from one to three weeks), but will open their mouths, spitting the eggs out and then sucking them back in to keep them clean and aerated.
