Being a mom is a tough job --- but imagine doing it in the jungle or out on the safari, faced by the ravages of the elements, a scarcity of resources, and the threat of predators at all times of the day and night. In WILD MOMS, Dr. Carin Bondar takes readers on an enthralling tour of the animal kingdom as she explores the phenomenon of motherhood in the wild. She answers a whole host of questions about the animal kingdom: How do moms in the animal kingdom cope with crying babies and potty training? How does breastfeeding work in the wild? If children with disabilities do not fit into Darwin’s theory of evolution, then why do we see mothers from various mammalian groups providing ongoing care to disabled offspring?
