Most domestic ducks that are raised on farms come from this species. Well endowed, this vertebrate has one of the longest penises in the world in proportion to its body.

It has about 10,000 feathers (between the cover and the plume) that protects it from the cold and the humidity. In the water, the duck floats on an air pillow attached to the featherbed and the feathers, completely sealed from the skin.
