A hermaphrodite animal is an organism which has both female and male reproductive organs in a single individual. A hermaphrodite plant is a plant which has both stamens or male reproductive organs and carpels or female reproductive organs in the same flower. Hermaphroditism or Hermaphrodism (the condition of being a hermaphrodite) is common in plants and lower animals. Examples of animals showing Hermaphroditism or Hermaphrodism include sponges (Porifera) and earthworms.
