Live With Kelly: Super Animal Dads

Father’s Day is not too far away, so Live With Kelly got a jump-start on the holiday by inviting some super animal dads to the show. A variety of animals from Sea World and Busch Gardens stopped by to teach the audience about their superb parenting skills! Kelly and Neil even got treated to a little surprise present.

Live With Kelly: Common Marmoset

Neil and the Common Marmoset monkey have something in common (no pun intended): they both raise twins. The Common Marmoset usually gives birth to two babies at a time, and the male monkey lend a big helping hand. He helps to carry the babies, feed the mother, and even gains weight during pregnancy. They are very cute and tiny, but as their handler pointed out, they are not pets!

Super Animal Dads: Penguins

Penguins, Red Foxes, and African Bull Frogs are just some of the animal kingdom's most amazing dads, which were featured on Live With Kelly.

Silvery Sheet Hornbill

The Silvery Sheet Hornbill is a large, dark bird with what looks like a banana stuck to the top of its bill. The oddly-shaped bill is made out of keratin, the same substance which makes up our fingernails (as well as Kelly’s hair extensions, as she pointed out). The male Hornbill helps to create a nest out of mud, fruit, and even species, then takes over the responsibility of feeding his mate.

African Bull Frog

The African Bull Frog is a huge, fat frog found in– you guessed it– Africa. Neil picked one up out of its cage, but was told to be extra gentle. If you squeeze an African Bull Frog, all of the water inside of his large body will leak out. They are fantastic fathers that watch over and guide their tad poles.

Live With Kelly: Red Fox

The Red Fox is found all over the Northern Hemisphere, and is easily distinguished by his red fur and white tipped-tail. The male fox helps the female create a den in which to have her cubs. He also brings her food every four to six hours, so she doesn’t have to leave her babies.

Super Animal Dads: Penguins

The highlight of the animal segment were the adorable penguins which waddled out and were a huge hit with the audience. These were little penguins, but the Emperor penguin is the real super dad of the penguin species. He is solely responsible for incubating the eggs with his feet.

Kelly and Neil were able to pet them, and got a big surprise when one of the penguins pooped and made a big mess all over the floor. After it was cleaned up, Neil’s equally cute twins came out from backstage to pet the little guys. Adorable!
