Male penguins rape other males, babies, and even the ground. Yeah, the ground.
You know how penguins look like cute little gentlemen in suits? Well, that’s a whole load of baloney. Turns out penguins are really rapey. They’ll rape other males, injured females, babies that fell from their nests, corpses, the ground…
Yes, they’ll actually stimulate themselves with the ground until they reach – ahem – completion.
Male chimps kill and dismember babies so they can mate.
Yes, you read that right.
Say a chimp wants to get it on, but the mother is busy being – well – a mother. They’ll steal the baby, gruesomely dismember it and eat it before her eyes so that she’s forced into mating again.
Don't worry, females do it too.
Female chimps are also known to kill other chimp’s babies. In fact, renowned primatologist Jane Goodall once discovered a serial killing mother and daughter duo called Passion and Pom who had killed at least three chimp babies at Gombe Park in Tanzania.
Chimps are brutal killers in general.
They not only kill their own kind in violent wars and often gruesomely depose their own troop leaders, they’ve been known to go for humans too. In the 1990’s there was a chimp named Saddam (after the brutal Iraqi leader) who was known to kill human children in Uganda.
He was finally stopped in 1999, when he was killed by local hunters after murdering an 18-month-old girl.
Lovely animals, chimps.
