Paternal Care

Last updated almost 5 years ago

Paternal care, a father participating in the raising of offspring, is rare in mammals, but quite common in birds, fish, amphibians, and some species of insects. In a number of groups, the father takes on most or all of the brood care. Here is a collection of images that show fathers of various species taking care of eggs and juveniles.
