Sunday, May 12 (Mother’s Day)

What feathered parents sacrifice almost everything—including their rosy hue—for their young? What reptilian mother provides exceptional nest-to-water shuttle service, and how? Which non-human great ape has the longest childhood, and why? Which birds fake injuries to distract predators from their nests? Why do some species’ offspring need a lot of care while others practically raise themselves? Celebrate Mother’s Day at the L.A. Zoo with some of the greatest parents in the animal kingdom!
