Polish biologists described a long-term pattern of recurrent fellatio between two castrated brown bears. During six years of observation at a Croatian zoo, the recipient-bear and provider-bear never switched roles. The act would last between 66 and 223 seconds, would be accompanied by the provider's audible humming, would typically result in ejaculation, and would conclude when the recipient pushed the provider away. The researchers speculated that the two bears may engage in this bonding, "milk"-producing activity because both were orphaned, and pointed to reports from India of autofellatio in ex-dancing sloth bears who had been cubnapped. | Harper's Magazine
