There aren’t that many animals that can show us what it means to be truly faithful. Only about 3-5% of them have a life partner . And some couples even have their own relationship traditions that are the purest display of their devotion to each other.
In the following list we share 10 of the animals that are happy with their partner until the end of their days:
The national symbol of the USA, bald eagles mate with their chosen partner for life , being faithful until the day of death or in cases of impotence. They build and care for the nest together, providing warmth or taking turns looking for food.
This marine fish stands out for the fidelity that the couple maintains with each other . Although they do not take care of their little fry, once they hatch, they live together forever and defend each other from attacks by other fish.
Gray wolves form a pack made up of a male, a female, and her pups. They are tremendously faithful to their partner and protective to death with their puppies.
One of the most cute behaviors of otters is that they hold hands while taking a nap to avoid getting lost. They divide their family chores equally, and sometimes other otters may even help out with babysitting.
Dik-diks heroically defend their partners from other admirers. These dwarf antelope may be small in size, but they have big hearts. Although conflicts are rare, males are always ready to fight for their loved ones. When the other dik-diks appear, both males lunge at each other, quickly stopping, nodding their heads and turning around, repeating this ceremony until the opponent surrenders.
Both parents are very responsible, but Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to these curious little critters. In this couple, it is the woman who needs to work hard to attract a man. And once the male is “in love,” he is the one who becomes pregnant and carries the babies for several weeks.
Atlantic puffins rub their bills together, as if they are kissing. These little birds rarely change partners, and every year they return to the same place to nest together with their beloved. Once the mother lays an egg, she takes care of it and the father brings food and defends the nest.
