Dad Bird Tucks Chicks Under Each Wing To Safely Walk Them Past Crocodile

Jacana chicks are born into the world unable to run or fly. They know where the food is, and they get to it on lily pads on overgrown feet that they will eventually grow into. And when they are hatched, their mothers abandon them leaving the fathers as their caregivers.

And it turns out Dad has a trick or two up his sleeve (quite literally) in order to keep them alive! With the dangers lurking beneath the lily pads, the father birds have to be smart and crafty. Watch as the dad takes each chick under a wing and walks them to safety never to be seen by the crocodile!
