These Comics Show Us the Amusing Side of Animal Fathers

 When it comes to parenting in the animal kingdom, mothers usually get most of the credit. And deservedly so. After all, they do the majority of the work in raising the young. However, while not all animal fathers in the wild are known to be doting parents, many of them do play interesting roles. For example, did you know that there’s a frog dad that 'gives birth' to the froglets from his mouth? 
These are the kind of diverse roles of animal dads that artist Rob Lang attempts to highlight through his comics. Rob posts funny and educational nature comics on his Instagram page that goes by the name Underdone Comics and here we have shared some of the artists’ best works that show us the amusing and little-known side of animal fathers.
