Few animals are as familiar as the mighty giraffe. Little do many of us know how incredibly gay they are.
Giraffes are not big breeders and only a small percentage of adults breed at all. In one study, during 3,200 hours of detailed study over an entire year, researchers observed only one single straight mating. On the other hand, in another study, gay mounting and necking made up an impressive 94% of all giraffe sexual activity. Turns out, giraffes are one of the gayest animals.
So next time you see a giraffe in a photo or a commercial, just remember: super gay.
