African Cuckoo Catfish Mommies are Very Naughty

When the Female cuckoo catfish of Africa is ready to have babies, it finds another mommy fish to take care of them! As a female cichlid fish releases her eggs, the African catfish will release eggs at the same time and mix them up with the cichlid's eggs. The cochlid scoops all the eggs up including the catfish's and raises them all. And the sneaky mommy catfish just goes off and plays while the cichlid fish does all the work of making babies!
