Animal Super Parents

There is rarely such thing as a 'conventional family' in nature - animals will go to extraordinary lengths in order to give their offspring the best start in life. This compelling series discovers why sometimes one-parent families are the best option, while at other times it pays for both parents to stick together or even to recruit a little extra help. From the polar bear single mum trying to discipline her playful cubs to the Adelie penguins who share parenting and the elephants who rescue stolen calves, it's amazing what some animal parents will do for the next generation!

Episode Description
Wednesday, Dec 13, 2017 - 10:00 PM    "Going It Alone" We reveal the weird and wonderful stories of some of the natural world's incredible single parents: their devotion, dedication and often jaw-dropping endeavour in order to see their babies through to adulthood. From the slow loris covering her baby in toxic saliva to the Weddell seal putting her pup through winter boot camp, a weedy sea dragon cleverly camouflaging his eggs against his body and the female giant Pacific octopus sacrificing herself for her brood - we see how these parents are prepared to go the extra mile to arm the next generation with what they need to survive. 1 of 3 G
