Motherhood is Grand

Motherhood is grand, even when demonstrated in critters you would just as soon not see procreate. It saddens me when a scorpion displays a stronger maternal instinct than some women I have seen (ala Jerry and Maury).

I want to see more of this love and attention shown to our own offspring. I'm not suggesting that we starting lugging around our eight kids on our backs (that is what minivans are for), but let's up our game a bit, okay?

To all of those that are already good mothers, maybe you can teach this scorpion a thing or two. Afterall, she may be likely to eat her own young for all I know - a behavior that is more or less absent from our species.

Thanks for the photo, Sean.
