Correct me if I'm wrong Tristana.
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. I'm not sure what you mean by "falls off" though. So yes, the fur works sort of like a bird's plumage in that sense. Basically, a male attracts a female by having more attractive fur. But that's not to say we're like animals, we're not all that shallow. A female won't nessecarily want to...you know...mate with a male just because he's attractive. (And it's not always the females that the fur is attractive to, if you catch my drift.) For example, while to you humans Teemo may be considered "cute", to female Yordles he's, and pardon my crudeness, a sexy beast, but that doesn't mean our relationship is anything more than friendship.
