All rights reserved. On December 11, scientists at the University of Lethbridge in Canada published a paper revealing what appear to be sex acts between young female Japanese macaques and sika deer. The wild monkeys were observed mounting the deer in Minoo, central Japan. Similar monkey-deer interactions on Yakushima Island were reported in January But while the previous research is based on anecdotal evidence, the current work focuses on the numbers. According to the team, which also consists of researchers Paul Vasey and Jean-Baptiste Leca , this paper is the first quantitative study of sexual interactions between a non-human primate and a non-primate species.

No banana dildos allowed, these six species of monkey have fascinating sex. What primates lack in cognition and intellectual ability they make up for in mind-blowing amounts of sex. Quantity matters just as much as quality. Here are six monkey species doin' it better than you.

Male Japanese macaques were first filmed earlier this year mounting female sika deer in Minoo, Japan. However, scientists have su g ges ted the unusual beha viour may well be sexual after adolescent female monkeys and sika stags were also observed copulati ng. Publishing their findings in the Archives of Sexual Behavriour journal, researchers hypothesised that there could be several different reasons why the animals are taking part in inter-species sex. They suggested young female monkeys may be using the interactions as practice for eventual mating with male macaques.
Following a report of monkey-deer interactions earlier this year , researchers have now recorded the behaviour in another group of monkeys. Sexual interactions between snow monkeys and sika deer could be a new behavioural tradition within a group of monkeys observed in Japan, researchers have suggested. While the first report of a male Japanese macaque, or snow monkey, and female sika deer taking to each other was revealed earlier this year , scientists say they are now confident the behaviour is sexual after scrutinising adolescent females suggestively interacting with stags at Minoo in Japan. While sexual interactions between closely related species have been seen for all manner of animals, from various species of fish to species of baboon, such liaisons are rare, with the sexual assault of king penguins by Antarctic fur seals the only other known example between distant species. But earlier this year, a study revealed a male Japanese macaque had been filmed mounting a female Sika deer at Yakushima island in southern Japan.
