deviantART user Humon has put together a slew of diagrams that succinctly and amusingly explain gender roles and parenting in the animal world. Did you know that Sea Horse dads are the primary caregivers? Female Hyenas are larger and more aggressive than male hyenas. The most common pairing pattern in the Tamarin world is comprised of two males and one female. The series is full of little tidbits such as these.

Each diagram incorporates a picture portraying an anthropomorphized depiction of a lady animal and gentleman animal with a short blurb that explains the illustration. For instance, one diagram features a drawing of a man, woman and baby. The reader learns that fish exhibit monogamous mating habits -- making them ideal pets for Republicans.
