ANTELOPE

The mating behaviour of antelopes is called 'lekking'. In 2008, it was reported that high quality male African topi antelopes are so much in demand that they have to fight off female admirers.

This is against the normal male mammalian behaviour of mating with as many females as possible.

Given the choice, a male topi antelope will choose a new partner over one he has mated with before.
