Stay-at-Home Animal Dads

Focusing on the “unsung heroes of the animal kingdom”, Stay-At-Home Animal Dads explores a world where little-known fathers take on the task of childrearing on their own. From pregnant male seahorses to “super dad” male emus, incubating eggs for months on end, to peculiar plainfin midshipman, a fish father that nests on the rocky shores of southern British Columbia, we follow the hardships, devotions, and quirky wild lifestyles exemplary of male-only care.
