Mating behavior is also known as mating courtship behavior, and this is when the male attempts to get a female’s attention; with the hopeful end result being reproduction. In this photo the male Golden frog is in its reproductive state with the female Golden frog. Frogs tend to be in a state of reproduction that can last from a few hours to a few days. In the next picture, the male giraffe was in an attempt to get the female giraffe’s attention. Occasionally she would show her affections, but most of the time she walked away as soon as he was to get behind her and try to mate. There are different forms of mating behaviors for each animal. To name some are monogamy, promiscuity, sex between species, sexual arousal from objects, mating apparently via duress or coercion, copulation with dead animals, homo-, hetero-, and bisexual sexual behavior, and many more.
