There are plenty of beautiful animals out there, but can animals be sexy? Yeah, to some people they can. The Internet has loved “hot animal photos” enough for them to become a full-blown trend. A gorilla has been called “too handsome,” and there's at least one person out there who wants to smell a studly horse.
These are some weird comments to make about animals, no doubt. But they don't only come from hot and bothered fanatics - scientists have also chimed in on the issue. For them, it's not a matter of looks so much as an issue of sexual activity. One amorous tortoise saved his species from extinction, while some sultry water fleas boast not one, but two "members."
Okay, regardless of where any of this is doing it for you, you're already here so you might as well check out the heart throbs that have set the animal kingdom on fire.
