Rhesus macaques mating in golden hour.

 #knowfurther

Although rhesus monkeys show mate preferences, in general they are highly promiscuous. As they live in multi-male, multifemale groups, there are ample opportunities for individuals to copulate with multiple partners. Female rhesus monkeys have a sexual cycle of 29 days. They are receptive to copulation for between 8 and 11 days during that cycle. To solicit copulations, females present their hindquarters to males. The skin of the perineal region becomes redded when the female is in estrus, and aliphatic acids are present, proving a potential chemical cue to their state of fertility. Rhesus monkeys are serial mounters, meaning that males mount a female multiple times before ejaculating.
Males attract mates either by having high dominance status within the social group, or sometimes by being friendly (grooming, carrying infants, etc) to females.

The green bee-eater is a natural-born bee-killer. 80% of the green bee-eater's diet is honeybees. It supplements its diet with ground-dwelling insects, such as termites, caterpillars, and spiders, along with fruits and berries.
