Is it true there are homosexual monkeys? If so, can other animals be homosexual?

HOMOSEXUALITY?

Post by pankaaj » Wed Feb 15, 2006 2:39 pm

Which species r that?
What is the need of homosexuality? Is there any economical benefit / genetic advantage to the specie? Or is it abnormality?

I heard there were homosexual monkies and apes, also seagulls. I think there are a lot of other animals that are, also. With apes I think in chimpanzees (not sure) but it probably has to do with their society structure, which is very complex.

the mutation characterizing homosexuality can only survive if it has any selective advantages ... many possibilities like being care taker will be there in the screen.

:wink: wouldn't be too surprised to hear that. many animals do exhibit homosexual or/and bisexual behaviour. eg. penguin, gorilla, cat even whale.

Because people can be homosexual, and monkeys and apes are almost human, I think they could be
