Animal Planet is celebrating Father’s Day with an A-List of Nature’s Best Dads.
Top contenders include the golden jackal (monogamous), the seahorse (pregnant), and the Emperor penguin, (good with kids).
But is the lion, (fiercely protective) really a “better” father than Eastern grey squirrels, which routinely eat their young?
Here’s hoping Animal Planet will continue anthropomorphizing all year—plenty of holidays await!
Perhaps a special on financially responsible animals (those beavers, saving up all that wood) for April 15? A drone bee retrospective for Labor Day?—Daniel Luzar
