ABSTRACT:
In recent years many studies have been published on animal homosexuality. Here, we reviewed the available observations on bat homosexual behaviour, presenting some behavioural hypotheses. Same-sex sexual behaviours can be classified in 6 different groups and till now have been documented in 22 species of megabats and microbats. Further investigations are required as many more species are expected to show similar behaviours.
