Fatal Attractions' Dave Salmoni gives us the dish on animal sex.

Does the term "f*$k like rabbits" ring true? What animal has the most sex, and who has the least? We chatted with hottie Dave Salmoni, the Animal Planet network's large predator expert and the go-to source for commentary on breaking animal attack news, who gave us the inside on the animal kingdom. What is the truth about animals: who is the most monogamous and who is the most promiscuous?
Most promiscuous: Rabbits do have a lot of sex, but the one who has the most is actually the Bonobo monkey. This type of monkey is quite a "promiscuous girl." In fact, she will oftentimes even prostitute herself. "If she is hungry and encounters another monkey with nuts, she will sleep with him to get food. Then if she finds another monkey with nuts, she will sleep with him too!" Dave tells us.
Least sexual: Whales, elephants, rhinos, and other animals with long gestation periods have the least amount of sex. Big, slow, and booorrinnng!
Most monogamous: "Birds are the most monogamous species in the animal kingdom," Dave says. The loon bird in particular is a bird that always goes home. Many birds pick a partner, and mate for life. Awww how cute!
Most polygamous: "Lions travel in a pride, which is essentially a 'harem,' with one male leader lion and several females, with whom he all has sex," Dave tells us. Surprisingly there are not many instances of jealousy and fighting among the females. Wow!
