    Prepare Your Heart. Because Itís Going To Explode When You See These 25 Photos.

    June 30, 2014 Animals Life


    The animal kingdom can sometimes be a ruthless place, but these 25 photos of animal parenting show that it can also be as just as tender as our own. Scientists usually separate animals into two categories based on how they raise their young. These are the R and K categories.
    Category R animals tend to have many offspring all at the same time who reach maturity faster. While K category animals tend to have fewer offspring that take longer to reach adulthood. Their young need more love and care, the kind of child rearing that we’re used to as humans (we’re also category K animals). Here are 25 animal parents who love their kids as much as you love yours.

    1.) “Stop it mom you’re embarrassing me!”

    Anton Belovodchenko


    2.) Cuddling up in the snow. Looks pretty cozy.

    9.) “Ok mom, staring contest go!”

    Doesn't look like an armadillo. So, I researched, it looks like a Pangolin. Never heard of them, they live in Africa and Asia!
