Three out of the five I knew. Male penquins, male seahorses, and gorillas all take care of the young. Those are the three I knew about. Seen many documentries on them.

I did know about some of them. It should be universal for dads to help with raising their genetic material, especially in humans in the 21st Century. Merci.
