You’ve Seen Fruit Bat Fellatio. Now: Fruit Bat Cunnilingus

Of 1,100 species of bats, only ten species have been observed having sex. One species does fellatio during copulation, another does cunnilingus before and after. See link for videos.

...in 2009 ... a study ... described regular fellatio among the short-nosed fruit bat.

... found that female bat will often bend down to lick the shaft of her mate’s penis during sex itself. This behaviour happened on 70% of the videos...

... a new paper describes cunnilingus among another fruit bat species—the Indian flying fox.

They saw the bats mate 57 times, most of which involved a brief amount of penetration bracketed by longer bouts of cunnilingus. The male would fluff up his penis and sidle over to a nearby female. He craned his neck over and licked her vagina for up to a minute, mounted her for around 15 seconds, and returned to 2.5 minutes of cunnilingus.

... oral sex is incredibly rare in the animal kingdom. We obviously do it, and there are anecdotal reports for bonobos (of course), orangutans and ring-tailed lemurs. But it seems that, aside from humans, fruit bats seem to be the only species that regularly practice either fellatio or cunnilingus as an actual part of sex.

It’s possible, probable even, that many other bats practice oral sex. A quarter of all mammals are bats, but scientists have only watched wild sex in 10 of the 1,100 or so species.  The flying foxes aside, most of these creatures roost in inaccessible nooks and crannies, and often in darkness. That makes it hard for voyeuristic scientists to get a view of their sex lives.
