Ow... Painful. But fascinating. That was a really educational and entertaining video. I liked seeing the female lion. She just wandered over by him, laid down, and next thing you know she was...well, y'know.

Great Video. I didn't know that's why cats roll over afterward. I saw a video of a rabbit and a cat mating once, and the cat did the rolling over afterward, so it much be instinctual, even with another species.

I saw just how painful it was when our queen was being mated. She was yowling, hissing and snarling. Torn out cat fur (mainly from the tom) was all over the place :D

I knew that. But gee, that was visual.

Now I have a precise understanding of what's written in books about cat sex.

I'm really interested in the dog one. But yeah that cat video was crazy. If that were me I'd definitely be running screaming.

I found a typo in the photos section too O.o... should be *an* animal not *a* animal on the last cat photo.

Agreed (minus the dog thing)!
Nice signature...do you mean the Jungian archetype?

They should do one on reptile sex and reproduction. It's fascinating.

Eek!

I knew about the tomcat's unusual anatomy, but I'd never actually seen pictures of said accoutrement. 8O

Bet our kitty's glad to have finished with all that. (She'd had kittens and been 'done' by the time we got her.)

That sounds about normal :(

I remember one night I heard this awful sound coming from outside, it sounded like a cat was being murdered I instantly flew up the stair woke my mom up grabbed a flash light and with her behind me rushed down the stairs hoping my male cat was ok. I opened the door and turned the flashlight on and he was doing the bing bing the sound I heard was from the female.

I haven't seen the second one yet, but at first I thought the first one was a wolf. I guess dog and wolf embryos really are similar.
