Macaques and sika deer commonly hang out together on the Japanese island of Yakushima. But this is the first time a male monkey has been observed attempting to mate with a female deer. In fact, it's only the second sexual encounter ever reported between two species that are not closely related, the other being between Antarctic fur seals and king penguins. While it could be a case of mistaken identity or a way for the monkey to learn to copulate, scientists believe the most likely explanation is that the male monkey in the video is a "peripheral male." These males are low-ranking member of macaque society that do not typically have access to females to mate with, thus the encounter may have been a way for the monkey to relieve sexual frustration.
