Giraffe sex is even weirder than we thought, and it involves peeing

Finding love can be difficult. But when you are lamenting your own love difficulties, think of the giraffe. Giraffes don’t go into heat like cats or dogs, they don’t have a mating season, they don’t make mating calls, and they don’t give visual cues that they’re ready to mate. So how do giraffes find mates?

It’s kind of gross, but this is how baby giraffes are made: A male giraffe – called a bull – pokes a nearby female giraffe – a cow – and sniffs her genitals. Sometimes he has to poke her a few times, but eventually the female giraffe widens her posture and urinates for about five seconds into the male giraffe’s mouth.
