Perhaps this should be labeled an adult photo......though thought of that brings back a memory from some years back. I was at the Philadelphia Zoo with family, my cousins, and their then young children. There were a pair of Galapogos Tortoises in the act of mating, which of course, they did not do quickly (why rush when you live a couple of hundred years). My niece asked what they were doing, and her dad, thinking quickly said that the one in back, on top, was hitching a ride.

It also reminds old Double decker buses once plying in Kolkata streets.

You can tell they are mating ..
and one is not just hitching a ride on top of the other..
They have both got their eyes closed..
Unless they have nodded off?
Bit rich, putting a microphone next to them, though?
