What structure produces an egg and estrogen? Ovary
The releasing of an egg by the ovary is called? Ovulation
What is the male reproductive hormone responsible for secondary sex characteristics and sperm formation? Testosterone
What is the female hormone responsible for secondary sex characteristics and the formation of the egg? Estrogen
The organ where a fetus forms. Uterus
Structure that delivers sperm into the vagina. Penis
Where fertilization takes place. Fallopian Tubes
The process in which an egg and sperm join. Fertilization
Structure that takes sperm from the epididymis to the penis. Vas Deferens
Holds the testis so that they are protected and are one degree cooler than the rest of the body. Scrotum
Strong muscular contractions a female feels when giving birth. labor

Mammals that deliver sperm into the body of the female and fertilize an egg inside the body do this type of fertilization. Internal Fertilization
When two haploid cells join to create a new diploid cell it is this type of reproduction: Sexual Reproduction
When one cell creates two new cells and pass all of it's chromosomes to the new cells it is this type of reproduction: Asexual Reproduction
