A sexually frustrated Antarctic fur seal has been caught on camera trying to make love to a king penguin, according to the UK paper The Daily Mail.
Scientests told the paper that it was the most unusual case of mammal mating behavior yet known, and was probably the result of the young male seal being sexually inexperienced and keen to learn the ropes.
The 16 stone seal first subdued the two-and-a-half stone penguin by lying on it. The penguin flapped its flippers and attempted to stand and escape – but to no avail.
Yeah we know: this isn’t news, but The Daily Mail went into so much detail we couldn’t resist, and there’s even happy snaps. More here.
