Gray whales are one of the animal kingdom's greatest nomads, traveling in groups called pods. They are also homosexual creatures. They participate some pretty wet orgies, including five males at a time. They roll around, splash water and rub their bellies against each other so that their genitals are touching.
Swans are birds from the Anatidae family. About 20 percent of Swans are part of a homosexual couple. Almost 25 percent of all families are parented by homosexual couples that stay together for years. At times homosexual swans drive away heterosexual couples from their nests and adopt their eggs.
Widely known as the genus of old monkeys, both male and female macaques participate in homosexual encounters. Female macaques form intense bonds with each other and are serially monogamous. However, they have several of these relationships during each breeding season. When female macaques engage in sexual intercourse, such as genital stimulation they vocalize their joy in forms of cackling sounds. Male macaque homosexual experiences are usually what we humans describe as a "one night stand."
