Love Making In The Animal Kingdom

Whether human or animal, to survive in this world, we all need to reproduce. It is our instinct to find a soul mate and have kids to pass our gene down generations. In the animal kingdom, it is no quite different. They also have love, jealousy, and sex.

Despite their angry looks, Chimpanzees are actually pretty peaceful animals who also love “sex”. Sex is usually used to say hello, solve conflicts, express their love, or even exchange foods. The way they have sex is almost similar to human, even with masturbation and “oral sex”.

Frigate Bird

This species of bird takes courting and loving to another level. During the mating seasons, the male expand their red neck to make big shinny red hearts to attract female Frigate birds. Couldn’t resist by the male temptation and romance, the female will eventually choose the best lover for her children. Usually the bigger heart means better love.

When the male perform the love dance ceremony, he will also use his wing to over his mate so she can’t wondering her eyes around for better candidates. This sounds like pure possessive and jealousy from the masculine side.

Panda

The Pandas are very lazy and they also don’t have any interests in neither sex or love making. However, due to their rare features and the fact that Pandas are almost extinct in the wild, many zoos in China try to encourage them to have sex.

One research center in Sichuan, China, has just discovered the secret of Pandas’ love making. They video tape the “porn” of other Pandas as the movie for other Pandas to watch. The result is phenomenon. Pandas got excited just like us human when watching dirty movies. Perhaps “Panda porn” helps increase their numbers significantly.

Honey Bees

With the honey bees, sex were never easy. They have to risk their own lives in exchange for sex. Usually in one bee hives, there is only one female, the queen, and thousands of male bees. Male bees are born just for sperm, worker bees are born to collect nectar, and the queen only lays eggs.

When the queen needs some sex, she will choose a bunch of male bees for “love making”. While mating, the sexual organ of the male bees will shoot out and stick to the queen’s body. After this task is done, the male bees will die.

Only in the bee kingdom when having sex is considered a death penalty. At least the queen only chooses a handful of male bees for mating. However, the rest which didn’t get chosen will eventually get kick out and die of starvation.

Deep sea Angler fish

Sex is getting weirder with the Angler fishes. Actually, this has been their way of loving for millions of years but still quite new for us. Living in the deepest part of the ocean with complete darkness does require a bizarre strategy. In a place where life is scarce, food is hard to get, finding a lover is almost impossible. However, the Angler fishes have develop a “I will never let you go away” technique to make sure their lovers will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

The male Angler fish will find the female and bite on to her. When bitten, his cells and body will become almost one with the female. He won’t need to swim or find foods again for the rest of his life. The female do all the work. In exchange the male Angler will supply her with sperm whenever she needed.

“The male Angler is so small it is one of the smallest fish in the world” – Deep sea mystics.

King Penguin

The King Penguins are faithful creatures. A pair can stay apart for almost a year but whenever the mating seasons come in March, they will travel thousands kilometers to meet up with each other. They have a special call to help them be able to find their soul mates.

King Penguins stay with the same partner year after year until they die. If one partner dies first or doesn’t return to the mating ground, they will find another one, otherwise they would never leave each other.

When giving birth to an egg, the female King Penguin will carefully handle the eggs to the father and then go to the sea for fishing. The male stays to hatch and protect the eggs for 2 months without eating much.
