Proud Papa

Frans De Backer shot this video of a new jawfish father in the Grand Caymans. The jawfish almost seems to show off his babies to the camera. At around the 1:05 mark, you can see the father aerating and cleansing the eggs by spitting them out and sucking them back.  Nature is pretty darn cool, wouldn’t you agree?
