Wild monkey spotted having sex with deer - and scientists believe it's part of a new trend
Female Japanese Macaques Seen Having 'Sexual Interactions' With Sika Deer
Mating behavior in Macaca arctoides has several features unique to the macaques. This pattern behaviorally accentuates some of the physiological aspects of coitus. Consequently, they can be more easily observed than in any of the other macaques. Homosexual encounters were numerous. They always involved sexual inversions that is, the assumption of the coital role generally assumed by the opposite sex. Orgasms were observed in females during homosexual interactions—they were easily distinguished by all the features enumerated above as characterizing masculine orgasms. Examination of the behavior of females during heterosexual coitus suggests that female orgasms also occur during heterosexual interactions.
The randy macaque monkey was caught on camera hoisting himself up on a deer's back and furiously humping. Scientists believe that animals from different species could start having sex with each other after video footage emerged of a monkey and a deer. The footage shows the male macaque sexually interacting with a female sika deer in Japan by researchers earlier this year. In a video, the monkey hoists himself up on his deer and begins furiously gyrating against its back.
