Animals make great parents. If you ever sit and watch ducks and their young, the hen will stop and look around before crossing a road, the young will be in order a line and the hen will keep guard on them. The same is true in the water. Large animals will fight to the finish for their youngs safety. A bird will attack you if you get close to the nest.
I think the majority of humans are the same way, a few are not.
Watch birds fly. They fly as an arrow. Watch the military fly, they to fly as an arrow. It is safer that way.
