I was only messing… TBH, I wonder how many species have the mental capacity to even know the difference(as in they are conscious/self aware of their orientation - which as the article pointed out, is rarely carried out to the exclusion of heterosexual activities). Homosexuality is only an issue in the animal kingdom if it is somehow to the exclusion of reproduction. Which, I believe, is unheard of. Another interesting phenomena is Social(but not necessarily sexual) monogamy. I've seen mother nature at work, and some of the stuff is just crazy…
