Mating rituals

Are there any bizarre mating rituals in the animal world? I have a class I'm teaching about it, and would love some info!

Wildlife Expert - Ken Burton

This is much too big a question for me to tackle here. The world is FULL of bizarre mating rituals! In fact, since every species has its own ritual (humans included), every single one might be considered bizarre! A great book that you definitely should check out is Judson, O. 2002. Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation. Metropolitan Books. Enjoy!
