Animals are happy, cute and adorable creatures. Despite facing bitter climates and deadly predators, they’ve survived generations. Different animals show their love in different ways. Try living your life like they do for a while, and you’ll notice the difference. You might even be surprised.
Penguins: For these birds, communication is the key to their love life. They are always seen with their partners and are only separated when they have to hunt or are faced with extreme winters. They spend time with other penguin couples and even take trips with their extended families!
French Angelfish: For this breed of fish, being there with their partner is the key. It is highly unlikely you will find this species of fish alone as they are known to live, travel and even hunt in pairs. They have bonds that last for as long as they live. They even act as a team to defend their territory from various threats.
Black Vultures: These birds are very serious about their mates. The couple hangs out together throughout the year and even share parenting duties. They then form a close-knit family within themselves.
Monkeys: They express their feelings of affection in different ways. After a fight with their partner, they make peace by grooming each other. They are generally very social creatures and live in families consisting of hundreds in peace.
Antelopes: The Kirk’s Dik-Dik doe-eyed antelope roam in groups and rarely stray. Researchers have found that the male species might stick around to cover his mate’s scent so that other male antelopes cannot track it. The female too, shows no interest in mating with males other than her partner.
Convict Cichlids: Despite its name, this fish is a considerate mate and parent. They mate and when the female lays eggs, they spend equal amounts of time fanning them and keeping predators away. Once the larvae hatch, the two parents share the burden of looking after them and if they wander off, the parents suck them back and spit them out into the safety of their home.
Swans: These birds symbolize purity and love. They also mate for life. When one partner dies, the other does not find another swan to mate with. They remain alone for as long as they live. They constantly show their love by bobbing their heads and bringing them together, making the space between them look like a heart.
Prairie Voles: The small burrowing prairie vole is one of the most faithful animals around. Once they have paired up, they share all the parenting duties and groom other, after which they cuddle. A study showed that when these males were tempted with other unfamiliar distrations, fewer than 10% succumbed. Even when the female died, very few of them found another mate.
Cats: These feline friends have a reputation for not expressing their feelings, but they do have their own way of showing that they care for each other. They usually lick one another to groom and to bond. This is usually done between cats that know each other very well.
Giraffes: A male giraffe usually flirts with a female by feeding beside her and sometimes even taking things a little further by entwining his neck with hers!
