Perantal Duty

Gharial off springs frequently fall prey to various predators both aquatic and avian. Ghrial babies after hatching out of eggs are eaten up in lots by big fishes and birds. To save its small infants, the adult Gharial takes them on its back so that fishes can not catch hold of them and when the big birds try to catch them the adult drives them away by any means they can manage to do. this is a natural phenomenon frequently seen in some rivers of India.
