Hey guys! We know you probably don't think about fly sex too much, but it turns out that the little buggers are a lot like you!
A recent fruit fly
porno study has revealed that when a male gets rejected by a lady he's trying to bang copulate with, he goes straight to the bottle. Or rather, straight to the dropper thingy.
In the video above, fruit flies prove that they have feelings to and when they get hurt, they like to get wasted and

A bull elephant seal is also called a beachmaster.
That is probably because if another bull elephant seal tries to come near his section of beach, or his harem of female seals, he will violently defend it.
During mating season, a fight can break out as often as 5 times a week!
Check out the above video to watch an epic beach battle.

We all knew it was coming but it's still sad.
Buddy and Pedro, Toronto Zoo's "gay" penguins have been split up.
And Buddy is already mating with a female!
The zoo is claiming it was more of a bromance than a gay love affair and that it's natural for same sex penguins to form a social bond in the wild.
Well even if they weren't lovers it's still sad two penguins who were so close are now split up.
But the zoo says it was because they had to ensure the continuity of their species.
Well hopefully Buddy and Pedro finds some solace in their new mates, but theres always hope they'll be reunited in the future.

Being on top is srsly stressful!
A recent report on five troops of wild baboons in Kenya studied over nine years found that alpha males showed very high stress levels, as high as those of the lowest-ranking males.
The stress, they suggested, was probably because of the demands of fighting off challengers and guarding access to fertile females. Mo'money mo'problems, right?
Beta males, who fought less and had considerably less mate guarding to do, had much lower stress levels. They had fewer mating opportunities than the alphas, but they did get some mating in, more than any lower-ranking males.
After all, when the alpha gets in another baboon bar fight, who’s going to take the girl home?
What we learned here: being lazy makes you happy!

Crazy / Sad!
A 300-pound male black bear wandered onto a road and was struck by an eastbound Pontiac Sunfire.
The impact sent the animal hurtling through the air, where it smashed the windshield of a westbound Nissan Pathfinder sport utility vehicle and went out through the back window, regional police spokesman said.
The SUV's 35-year-old female driver and a 40-year-old man sitting behind her were killed; a 28-year-old front-seat passenger suffered minor injuries, Fournel said.
In the Pontiac, neither the driver, a 23-year-old man, nor his 19-year-old male passenger was hurt.
Authorities say everyone needs to be careful while driving during bear mating season.

Is there such thing as too sexy?
Researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia have proven it's possible.
The researchers engineered a population of male Drosophila serrata flies to release excess amounts of a combination of pheromones that female flies find super sexy.
Then, through a process of selective breeding, they studied the descendants of the supercharged males.
The study found that while sexual attractiveness in male fruit flies increased over generations, after seven generations the females stop mating with them.
Meaning - there is a biological cost to being too attractive.
Although male sexual traits are often obvious in animals, like the bright colors of a peacock tail and the mane of a lion, an overabundance of sexuality may not be a good thing.
What can human's take from this? One researcher says -
"that very attractive individuals may well have something wrong with them — they may not be as good as they seem to be at first glance.”
We're still not ready to feel bad for Brad Pitt.
