There Are Different Kinds of Great Fathers


It isn't just in humans that fathers show such a wide degree of parenting styles, roles and responsibilities. The same is true in the animal kingdom.


Perhaps the most unusual of all animal fathers are seahorses. They are one of the only m.ale animals in the world t.o get pregnant. The female deposits her eggs into his brood, then he fertilizes the eggs and carries them t.o term. As you can see in the image, they can get quite large. Seahorses can deliver as few as five babies or as many as fifteen hundred!


After a summer of hunting and feeding, Emperor Penguins enter their breeding season in the fall, where each mother produces only a single egg. After she transfers the egg t.o her mate, she spends the rest of the winter in the open water. The father penguins huddle together, guarding the egg. By time the egg has hatched, the father penguins will have lost forty-five percent of their body weight. They then leave to feed at sea.


Bald eagles mate for life, and parent many eaglets, often returning t.o the same nest year after year. Both eagles take turns adding sticks t.o the nest and keeping the eggs warm until they hatch. The fathers do most of the hunting and feeding by gently placing small pieces of meat into the young bird’s mouths. As the eaglets mature, both parents care for their young together until the baby birds can fly and hunt on their own.


Male silverback gorillas lead cohesive families, defending females and offspring from threats by charging and beating their chests. They have an important role in their offspring’s socialization and support infants during times of weaning. Virunga National Park is home more than half the world's mountain gorilla population.


A hardhead catfish doesn’t get pregnant like a seahorse, but he does put up t.o forty-eight of his fertilized eggs in his mouth and carries them with him for sixty days. If that wasn’t uncomfortable enough, he doesn’t eat for this entire period.


M.ale lions often laze around in the shade while female lions hunt all day. However, they will put their lives on the line when it comes t.o protecting their territory, their females, and their cubs. The lionesses hunt and provide for the pride, allowing the males and cubs t.o eat first, and in return, the lion fathers do whatever it takes to protect his family.

Today is always a sentimental one for me. My Father's birthday often fell on the same day. This year he would have turned ninety years old. It doesn't seem possible he died sixteen years ago. He was broken-hearted when my Mother died and only lasted two years without her. Memories however last forever.

Thank you 🙏. I often feel my parents’ presence too. On his birthday, I think I saw his apparition for the first time.

I knew about the seahorses.

My dad is a good person, lived a hard life with odds against him and took care of us to the best of his abilities. He's a unique and imperfect man, but he will forever be my dad.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing your perspective. My parents were young, only 20 and 23 yrs old when they got married. My Father was the younger one. Legally allowed to get married but not drink.

It is a special day for many and who doesn't like to sip champagne?
Yes, the apparition was not scary but truly a phenomenon I had never seen before.

Regardless if it's a 'refresher' or brand new, it's fun sharing information that I have found interesting. Enjoy your day.
