I saw her epic parenting on Life, a new series on the Discovery channel. This episode chronicled the extraordinary strategies animals and plants have developed to stay alive as individuals and as species. This particular creature goes to enormous lengths to protect her tadpoles from threats.

Is she confident in your care long after the final sale?
