Sea Lion Dies of Sex Exhaustion

Sea lion dies of sex exhaustion

2009-07-22 09:19 Sea lion Mike has died of exhaustion after over-exerting himself during the mating season in an animal park in Nuremberg, Germany. (Nuernberg Tiergarten, AFP)





Berlin - A male sea lion from California called Mike has died of exhaustion after over-exerting himself during the mating season in an animal park in Nuremberg, Germany, .

"Mike could no longer get out of the pool and was brought ashore by staff. The extremely weakened animal was treated by a vet but died from acute heart failure around 15:30 (1330 GMT)," it said.

"Mating season is a common time for fatalities when bulls often stop eating for days to devote themselves fully to mating. For sea lion bulls with a harem this is the most exhausting time," it noted.


Now that is what I call commitment !!
And sure beats being dragged along by your harness at 5-6 kts on a wet and windy night being beaten to pulp against your hull,
while your better half kips below ........................

That's funny. Now, if we could pick our own way to go, how many guys wouldn't pick this way? With a harem, of course.
