Little is known about Melmacian mating rituals. From all evidence given, it seems that Melmacians are monogamous. Melmacian couples signify that they are going steady by spitting into each other's soup. Melmacian couples traditionally have their children before they marry.
The act of mating involves a shrill mating call emitted by the male, which knocks the female unconscious. Little else is known about the process, except that it involves "releasing the pods."
When a Melmacian mother gives birth, the father traditionally goes skeet shooting and says "Pull! Pull!"
