Are there any animals where dads take on the majority of the parenting roles?

    Yes. The most common ones, I assume, are seahorses. Other ones include the giant water bug, sticklebacks (a carnivorous fish), Panamanian poison-arrow frogs, emperor penguin, spotted sandpipers, and surprisingly, the red fox. 

    Red Fox

    The male red fox supplies his offspring with food and also teaches them self-defense.

    Seahorses and penguins are among some of the animals where the males provide most of the parental care.  Male penguins sit on the egg while the females hunt for food — they wait patiently for their mates to return while they take care of the egg.
