Female-hood In The Wild

Female-hood In The Wild

Femalehood In The Wild. Is it any different from ours or for domestic species. As we get to celebrate women around the world on this special day. Lets celebrate the ladies in the wild too.

I wish all ladies around the world, happiest International Women Day. May we continue to shine and sky should not be the limit. Thumbs up to all men who support women.And those who are yet to join the team, we are waiting for you to transform. Women are the light and great asset in our community.

Today I was like us to get to know several females in the wild that make me smile every time I think about them. They include:

  • Lioness
  • Northern Jacana
  • Black Rhino
  • Baboon

You will manage to see which of them has traits you like or have.



Despite being smaller than the lions (male), they are better hunters and does most of the hunting. Surprisely, male lions are the ones that consume the prey first.

They are not only the bread winners, but lead the pride too. While their male counterparts, ensure no intruders. Defending the pride’s territory as well as marking it with their scent markings.

They do most of their huntings at night and in groups.

Now this one, is the best to study.

She lays the eggs and the male incubates them. She rarely or reluctantly incubates her eggs.

She lives within a territory of 1 – 4 mates. She will mate with several of them away or form more than one pair bonds with her mates. This is because they have a simultaneous polyandrous mating system.

She has a very strong relation to her half. But not her mate. Spends time mostly alone and bond with a male while mating.



They live in troops where a dorminate male rules that small world. This male can mate with any female in the team.

She is the primary care taker of the offspring.


As we can see, some are able to do it on their own, some choose to delegate the responsibilities to others while other depend on the team effort.

Same applies to humans and it’s very normal. Just understand yourself and work towards making it work.

Lets ensure that we allow wildlife such as black rhino , have enough space to live as they like. Alone, solitary needs huge space. So let say no wildlife land encroachment and grabbing.

Kudos to all women working hard to make a difference in the world of conservation and sustainable living. Many times, many have thought that this can be done perfectly by men. But we are doing a pretty good job as well. Let support each other and make conservation succeed.

Femalehood literally holds population for tomorrow. They help carry the feoutus and take care of the young ones. The sperm need the egg, for a successful life. None is important than the one. we need to advocate and fight for balance for better.

Conservation need all of us because it needs all the help it can get. Both genders are very important in each living species.
