Monogamous Animals

Animals don’t usually put a “ring on it” however, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t monogamous. Animals too like a monogamous relationship, while most species aren’t monogamous. We have a list of 8 monogamous animals that are out in the wild.

Schistosoma mansoni worms

The Schistosoma mansoni worms are a known parasite that is carried by freshwater snails. Once in contact with the human skin, the penetrate and deposit their larvae that feed on blood. As they travel through the blood, the larvae pair up and stay together reproducing up to 300 eggs per day.

Beavers

Beavers are one of the very few mammals that stay monogamous. Once they find their mate, they spend time building their relationship. You can say that they spend as much time working on their relationship as they do in building dams. The couple parents the kids together until one of them dies.

Wolves

Wolves start breeding at an early age, at times of two. No matter how early they start, they abide by the “till death do us part” saying. The couple travels with the Wolfpack and reproduces every year. They even mourn the death of their partner.

Barn Owls

The Barn owl is a very faithful bird when it comes to their mates. The male spends time wooing the female with gifts, generally food, and screeches. Once she agrees, they stay loyal to each other.

Bald Eagles

When you fly high, you don’t really expect to stay with one mate. That, however, is not the case with Bald eagles. The Eagles may fly alone, usually in winter and migration time they separate but they rekindle their love come mating season. They find each other and are known to stay together for years.

French Angelfish

You know what they say, a couple that does things together, stays together. When French Angelfish find their better half, they do everything together. From hunting to hanging out, the pair is inseparable. Talk about being clingy, but that maybe their formula to staying monogamous.

Swans

Swans are considered to be one of the most elegant birds in the wild. Male swans show a lot of commitment to their female mate. They are only one of two birds that actually share egg incubation duties with the female. Which is probably why they are more monogamous than other birds.

Gibbons

The Gibbons do not monkey around with it comes to a relationship. They spend most of their lives with their partner, never really going astray. They also show relationship traits similar to that of human, building a family and raising them.
