A picture of two males lions making love was taken from Masai Mera National Reserve, Kenya.
Paul Goldstein, a travel guide from Wimbledon, UK, witnessed the two male lions while giving a tour in the reserve.
“It only takes a few seconds for a male and a female lion to mate,” “But these two male lions continued the act for nearly a minute,” Goldstein said.
Goldstein also added that these two male lions stroked each other which showed to be an act of “affection” after they finished mating.
Homosexuality among lions is rare, but still often seen. In fact, 8% of the lions’ sexual intercourses is known to be done between males.
Although lionesses also share homosexuality, such lioness couples are usually found in zoos rather than wildlife.
Animal homosexuality is common in nature and about 450 species are recorded to be having homosexual relationships.
It also reported that in some species the animals refuse to mate with opposite sex.
“Sex is not just about making babies, it’s a way of running a group,” says zoologist Peter Bockman. “Homosexuality is a normal behavior in some animals species,” he added.
