Are sea horses the only animal where the males incubate their young?

    Nope! Among most bird species, parents share the task of incubation. Among approximately 5 percent of bird species, including jacanas and phalaropes, males do all of the incubating.

    Interestingly enough, there are not, as the above post states. Sea horses are also not the only species in which the male does much of the raising of the infant animal. Some species of penguins, like the Emperor penguin, carries the egg and looks after the chick during its adolescence more so that the female. There are also some species of fish (catfish and Siamese fighting fish) that will also look after the young. Below is a link for many more kinds animals with nurturing fathers.
