Gay Lions

Male Lions performing classic mating rituals on one another

Are male lions gay? Personally I don't think they are. We, that's us humans by the way, just like to anthropomorphize anything and everything that happens out there in the natural world. Homosexual behavior in animals has been known to take place in about 10% of the species on the planet and has been well documented in about 1500 species worldwide. Dogs do it, cats too, even insects, so why don't we just see it for what it really is- animals reenforcing social bonds, strengthening allegiance between group members and asserting dominance over one another. What I find really interesting is the fact that this kind of behavior has never been seen with female lions in the wild- why not?
