Subject Area
Galapagos-Seebär. Ein territorialer Bulle steigt mehrmals auf ein Weibchen auf, bis schließlich die Kopulation gelingt. Niederhalten des Weibchens, rhythmische Beckenstöße des Männchens, deren Frequenz mit der Zeit zunimmt. Während der Kopulation beißt ein kleineres Männchen mehrfach den kopulierenden Bullen, der das aber kaum beachtet, obwohl er sonst solche Männchen von seinem Territorium vertreibt.
The first two sequences demonstrate the usual interaction between territorial males and non-estrus females. In the subsequently shown copulation the male has already intromitted, holds the female down and is thrusting intravaginally. The female bites the male in the skin of his neck. In the next sequence an entire copulatory sequence is shown from initial repeated mounts, to intromission, slow intravaginal thrusting to the end of the copulation when the female struggles free.
