Almost all creatures care for their young. Many animals play with their babies and show their love by touching and hugging them.1
Most animals clean, feed and protect their babies. Birds also ‘teach’ their young ones how to go about in the world as adults.2
A number of animals built home for their young. Tailorbirds and weaver birds, ants, wasps and bees are among nature’s master designers, engineers and architects. They weave, stitch and make different types of homes for their young using twigs, leaves, plant fibres, mud, saliva, wood and wax.3
Female elephants care the longest for their calves. After a baby is born it is closely guarded for months. The mother usually selects a full time baby-sitter from her group. This baby sitter helps in raising the calf properly. She walks with the young as the herd travels, helping the calf along if it falls or gets struck in the mud.4
While marching through the jungle, the calf is made to walk between the mother and baby-sitter.
Cubs of polar bears are born blind. When the cubs are born the whole family stays in the den. The mother breaks the entrance to the den when her cubs weigh about 10 to 15 kg. For about 12 to 15 days, the family spends time outside the den while remaining nearby. The mother grazes on vegetation while the cubs become used to walking and playing. Female polar bears are noted for their affection towards their offspring.
The males of a number of species also help look after the young. The male salt water crocodile is known to care for its babies when ‘mama’ is out for a swim. At mealtimes, the chief gorilla keeps watch while the females and the youngsters feed. Later, while the leader eats, the older male cubs keep guard.
The animal world is full of examples of the close bond between parents and their young.

Two animals at Antoli village have attracted the attention of everyone including the wildlife activists.
Honorary wildlife warden Rohit Vyas, who has visited the village several times said, “A leopard has been visiting a cow at regular intervals since October last year. After the villagers told us about the frequent visits of the leopard to the sugarcane field, our team visited the village to verify the story.”
Vyas continued, “It was unbelievable, the leopard came close to the cow and the fearless cow licked the leopard on its head and neck.”
Giving further details, Vyas added, “The dogs bark non-stop every night between 9.30 p.m. and 10.30 p.m. when the leopard comes to meet the waiting cow.”
The Forest Department, which was trying to capture the beast, gave up its efforts after learning about the friendship.
Besides, the leopard didn’t harm other animals in the village. In fact, the residents welcome the big cat.
