We were learning about good Dads in the Animal Kingdom. Here are some we found out about:
The experts say that there is evidence
that dinosaur dads minded their children
and protected the nest.
The marmoset grooms the baby monkeys,
feeds them and carries them round on his back.
The seahorse is the only male creature that gives birth
Carries the eggs in a special pocket
in his throat until they hatch into tadpoles.
Siamese fighting fish
Protects the eggs until they hatch.
The Emperor penguin keeps his egg warm under his feathers, balanced on his toes. He doesn’t eat for two months while he is waiting for the egg to hatch.
The silverback gorilla protects his children and plays with them.
