The love of a father for his son has no borders, and applies to both men and our friends the animals. In these moving pictures of raising animals, you will recognize many of the same moments of tenderness and stress present in the lives of parents of humans.
Environmentalists tend to separate the animals into two categories depending on their parenting – R and K. The category K, categories include animals such as elephants, cats and us humans – animals that have relatively few offspring with longer gestation periods. The reduced number of offspring require more focused attention, and for a longer time – the type of parenting to which we are accustomed. Meanwhile, the parents of the category R choose quantity over quality, having many children grow quickly, individually and have little chance of survival.
