What can you see?- A mother swan carries a few of her cygnets on her back. When cygnets are only a few days old, both parents can afford the luxury of carrying their children on them. This is probably
the most effective way to look after them, as the new-borns that they are. No heron or other predator will try and take away a cygnet from the protective wings of their parents. The tricky question is; why do they carry them? To protect them? If so, is it because they care about them? They might not tell us verbally that they love their family and that they will give it all for them, but let’s not ignore the obvious. The barrier between humans and animals is artificial, because humans are animals.
