Love and fidelity among albatrosses and beavers
When you say "love", you're also saying "fidelity". And it even exists among animals. Albatrosses, for example. These large sea birds are loners. But once they've found a mate, they meet him or her every one to two years on an island: there, the female lays one egg that the pair hatch together. An albatross only seeks a new partner if his or her mate dies and fails to return to the nesting place. Beavers are also faithful and remain with their chosen partners for life. Mr Beaver defends his territory against invaders, builds his family a smart subterranean home and is a tender lover: swimming belly to belly with his adored one, he gives the joys of love in the water.
Pssst … flowers are also tender and a message of love. Our suggestions are HERE.
Of loose-living blue tits, penguins and gibbons
Last but not least, the legend of gibbons "mating for life" has been put into perspective. In the Thai Khao Yai National Park, a researcher who observed gibbons reached the astounding conclusion that around 20 percent of the females lived in permanent threesomes with two males.
Say that you're not just a flirt with flowers. The shop is HERE.
