Gametes = sex cells

Gametes are the sex cells that fuse together during fertilisation in sexual reproduction. Female gametes may be called ova or eggs. Male gametes are sperm or pollen.

Gametes fuse during fertilization mnemonic

A sperm whale and an egg take on a goat at a game of cards. They love gambling and place an opening gambit (gamete).


The whale has pulled on (pollen) mitts and the egg is oval (ova) shaped.

Animal eggs turn into embryos and plant eggs turn into seeds
