Amazing Animal Families

Animals have different types of families like we do.

In swan families, both parents care for their babies. Swan babies can’t fly for a few months. So, their parents sometimes carry them on their backs.

In cheetah families, the mothers raise their cubs alone. Cheetah cubs’ eyes don’t open for almost two weeks. So, their mothers help them a lot! Later, they also teach them to hunt.

In seahorse families, the fathers take care of the eggs. They keep them in special pouches. The eggs become healthy babies thanks to them.

These animal families are different. But all the parents love their babies
