Wild animal fathers are often seen merely as sperm donors with little contribution or influence on family affairs. This is indeed the case in plenty of species but many other wild animal dads have evolved to besignificant and, in some instances, essential contributors to offspring survival. This book takes a close look at the role of animal dads in nature and what that may say about fatherhood inhumans - giving insights into truly fascinating paternal behaviour in wild animals ranging from seahorses to monkeys and ostriches to penguins. Fatherhood is an oft-neglected subject, compared to motherhood,yet many animal societies have evolved a major role for dads beyond the donation of sperm.
