Photo Of Mating Lions Quickly Goes Viral After People Notice This (PHOTOS)

It turns out that male lions can be gay. Although it was already an established scientific fact, a safari goer recently recorded two adult male lions pursuing what are pretty clearly amorous activities.

Of note, the two affectionate lions were photographed in the Lagoon area of the Kwando Concession in Botswana, Africa.

Nicole Cambré took the pictures during a safari trip, and noted she picked out the two male lions 'mating', and was surprised when her guide said that this had been going on for over a week now.

Cambré commented: “These males had pushed out the resident males earlier in the year and the other female lions had headed into the Mopani woodlands; an area difficult to access with a safari vehicle.
Only one lioness was seen in the centre of the concession where the male lions were and the lions showed no interest in the lioness leading to the assumption that she may have been pregnant.”

She continued: “This is the first time I have seen homosexual behavior in lions, but when reading about it upon my return, it is not that uncommon. With the light just around sunset, it gave some spectacular images.”

Keep in mind that a male lion mounting another male lion is apparently not uncommon, wildlife biologists have reliable data for same-sex sexual activity in over 450 species including flamingos, bison, beetles and warthogs.
