Ducks rape each other all the time. Sometimes male ducks even rape other male ducks. In one documented case, a male mallard copulated with another male duck AFTER the male being chased flew into a glass window and DIED. The paper was called ”The first case of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard Anas platyrhynchos

Ducks also have crazy long, curly penises. No, really.

When a cat rubs up on you, it’s not showing affection but claiming ownership. So all you cat people, who’s really the pet, huh?
