Weirdly shaped mouse sperm can be used to tell species apart

Lots of rodent species look nearly identical, and it's hard to tell them apart using DNA. But scientists have found a new way to distinguish one species from another: the shape of their sperm. Closely related species can have sperm with radically different shapes, with sperm head shapes ranging from smooth and rounded to 'soft-serve ice cream cone.' And that means scientists have a new means of telling them apart.
