The Proof We Could Soon Have A New Monkey-Deer Species
The disturbing moment a wild monkey attempted to have sex with a deer has been caught on camera.
Researchers captured the shocking moment a Japenese macaque male mounted a female Silka deer.
Apparently the reason for the bizarre behaviour is due to a hormonal surge in the monkey during breeding season.
It is only the second time ever, that two animals from different species have been seen mating. In 2014 a fur seal was filmed mating with a king penguin.
