Animation showing several hamster sperm fusing with an egg cell during fertilisation. The sperm are divided into 3 main regions: a head, neck and tail. The head contains the genetic material in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The tail of the sperm acts as a propeller for the sperm to swim towards the egg.
