In Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, two male lions were seen sneaking through the bushes to have sex. The scene was captured by a wildlife photographer, the two lions both disappeared for a while to mate.
Paul Goldstein, guide for Exodus Travels and co-owner of Kicheche Camps, saw the scene “We saw two awesome alpha males in perfect light. What happened next was remarkable. »
He explained that although it didn’t last long, there was a lot of affection between the two male lions after mating, an act that doesn’t always happen between two members of the opposite sex.
Although it is rare to see lions of the same sex mating, this is not the first time we have heard of such a story. Also this year, two more male lions were seen having sex at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, right next to a lioness.
In 2006, News Medical shared that homosexual behavior has been observed in 1,500 species. This includes all animal species, from mammals to crabs to worms, some like bonobos, which are very sex-oriented to settle their conflicts, for example practice bisexuality.
