The reproductive process of medical leeches is complex and lengthy. They, like all other leeches, are hermaphrodites, but fertilize only crosswise. The development of medical leeches is not direct – the larvae hatched from the egg remain in the cocoon where their metamorphosis takes place. From the cocoon emerge very mobile pups, which already have a color characteristic of the species and are able to live independently.
