One of the things we’re learning, and I think that relates to humans and probably to a number of other species is that very early life effects are very important.

Rotating Planet presents a salute to the animal kingdom's most devoted dads—from male seahorses that get pregnant to the daddy emus that incubate their eggs. In this 50-minute documentary, we explore these curious branches of life's evolutionary tree. Who are the single dads in the wild that take care of the brood while mom is off philandering? Our journey into the parenting habits of these unusual species will unravel a puzzle that despite work for centuries has only begun to be understood in the last ten years. Experience the arduous trials of fatherhood with species like the dutiful midshipman fish who spends four months without food and the resourceful poison frog carrying its young through the treacherous rain forest.
