Chimps and dolphins too from time to time - also for social reasons.

:thumbs_up: Now name the species in which at least 50% plus of matings could be described as rape.

:thumbs_up: Strange for two relatively close relations to have such different behavior. In most cases mating between orangutang is preceded by the male physically attacking and subduing the female.

Whoop-whoop. :dance: :dance:


Great info coming through, Imberbe. It seems Bottlenose dolphins are just as bad.

And isn't it the same with cheetah? Especially when a group of males latch onto a female in heat? Basically repeated gang rape? Or am I misremembering again?
