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!
