20 wild animals to steer clear of during mating season

Wolves

Wolves in mating season can actually be quite sweet. Wolves often pair into long-term partners, and when it comes time to mate, the couple enters a bit of a honeymoon phase. They nuzzle one another, sleep next to each other, and, uh, urinate to show their excitement. When time comes to actually mate, due to the shape of the two animals’ anatomy, they actually become stuck together, often for up to half an hour. This two-headed wolf scenario is called being “tied,” and it’s not something you want to wander upon in the woods.
