Well I've heard stories and even seen animals mating, which even the mature adults can make jokes at especially when your child asks you what they're doing. Then you see the momma animals nursing. Which today I saw the monkeys nursing and my 9yo thought it was the coolest thing. Which I did too. But what goes through your head when you walk up to the black bear exhibit and you see the male bear sitting up on his rear end and paws out in front kinda like a human. And then you see him leaning over sucking on his own penis. In shock all the adults are laughing and taking pics. Then my 9yo asks "what's he eating" so we say its a carrot but she said it was too stretchy to be a carrot. And we are laughing uncontrollable so she doesn't believe us. So yeah at bedtime she brings it up again. At this point I believe she is old enough and mature enough to understand that animals are wild and do things like that so I told her the truth. And she said "that's just weird" lol

So what's the strangest thing you've seen at the zoo? Or even in the wild.

Wow.  Didn't know that was possible.  You learn something new every day. 

I once saw one of the capuchin monkeys pleasuring himself, looked just like a hairy little man.  Really gross.

Wow... LoL. The weirdest thing we've seen at the zoo was a mom gorilla drinking her own breast milk.

We sure were. Which is probably what made my 9yo more curious. Lol. My friend from.CM is vacationing down here and we went together so she took a good pic with her fancy camera. Couldn't get one with my cell phone good. Waiting for her to upload them to a computer when she gets home. Lol

Lol, wow they can suck their own penis, I know humans wish they could do that, but I haven't been to a zoo in a while and don't remember seeing anything weird
