When humans have a baby, they devote all their love, care, and attention to them. The mum, dad, grandparents, and siblings all pitch in. But how does it work in the animal world? Are animals also diligent parents? Surprisingly, parenthood in the animal kingdom is very diverse.

You can find parents who share their child-rearing duties equally and instill everything in their tots they’ll need in life. In other families, the mum is in charge of the upbringing, and handles it with great skill. But you can also encounter parents who don’t look after their young at all, and either leave them to others, or at the mercy of nature. Let’s journey through the wilderness together and meet various animal families and their different approaches to child-rearing. As you’ll see, the nature always comes with some very smart solutions.
