The Best and Worst of Animal Dads

More on PawNation: Animal Planet, Cats, Fathers Day, Fish and Marine, Relationship

Father's Day is a time to thank our dads for all they do for us. Whether it's playing catch or teaching us how to drive, our fathers are around to lend us a hand. But at PawNation, we're more curious about animal dads. They may not be able to take their children to a baseball game, but they can provide for their young in their own ways, like teaching them how to hunt and forage for food. Yet as we know, not all dads are stellar, which can mean really poor parenting skills in the wild. Check out this video to see Animal Planet's ranking of the best and worst dads in the animal kingdom.

So,... basicly, if the dad does more of Moms work, he's a good Dad, If not, he'as a bad Dad.. Let's make the females roles even easier.

Sorry, the opening shot on Wolves as good or bad dads is not a wolf. It is a coyote. The scene thenchanges and those are wolves. But the opening guy is not.

My DAD made it a POINT to be available for ANY REASONABLE PROJECT =- or -= REQUEST even during those DREARY DAYS OF WORLD WAR # 2! --- He lived from 1894 until 1980, thus passing on at age: 86.

I think lion dads have the right idea and it's how it should be in humans as well.

Lions are wrongfully crucified. Cut them some slack.

Lions have never been crucified. Quite to the contrary, they would eat the Christians crucified by the Romans.

As a child, the family did celebrate Father's Day, even though our dad was not a loving father. He was mean, hot tempered, angry, played favorites among his children, controlling, etc.. Here was my sweet little mother tolerating his abusive manner. We wanted mother to divorce him, but she would not.
