In the animal kingdom, most creatures don’t have that kind of time to spend wining and dining because most animals don’t live that long. Instead, the whole process of mating is often much more straightforward with males somehow attracting the attention of a female long enough to perform their task before moving on.

It isn’t all so straightforward all the time in the animal kingdom, however. We as humans are likely thankful our mating habits are fairly benign. Just be thankful we don’t follow the rituals of some spiders who eat their mate after performing the deed. Perhaps even worse, we don’t take after the praying mantis which occasionally sees the female eat the head off the male while in the act.

The following video looks at some of the weirdest mating rituals ever observed in the animal world.
