It may take two to make a baby – but not necessarily two to bring it up. So what makes a parent decide to stay or go? Especially if that parent is a dad.
From the California mouse mother who has to kickstart her partner’s paternal instincts, to Adelie penguin parents who can’t leave their eggs alone for five minutes; from cheetah mums practicing promiscuity to keep the dads on side, to flamingo parents both producing milk for their young.
