** Female African rhinos take this UpToEleven. An African rhino will not go into heat unless she has some other females with her. This is because a group of lions very likely could kill a calf if they have enough to distract the mother while they do. Waiting until there are a bunch of other females around to go into heat ensures that anything going after a baby rhino will not only have to deal with the mama rhino, but at least half a dozen ''auntie'' rhinos.

* There is at least a theory that skeletons of cave lions are found in caves (where they didn't live) because they got inside to prey on cave bear cubs during the winter, and were killed by the cubs' mothers. Consider that the ordinary cave lion was bigger than a Siberian tiger, and the cave bear, while slightly more robust than the grizzly bear, was a full vegetarian.

* Anna Timofeevna Gagarina, mother of YuriGagarin. Getting between her and her children was [[BerserkButton not a good idea]]. During WorldWarII, she verbally and [[PintsizedPowerhouse almost physically bested]] an armed and considerably larger [[NaziGermany German soldier]] who [[WouldHurtAChild attempted to hang youngest son Boris from a tree]] -- needless to say he was quickly released to her. Apparently before Yuri's funeral, she demanded the casket [[BrainBleach be opened]].

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_of_Aragon Katherine of Aragon]], the first of [[TheHouseOfTudor Henry VIII's]] six wives, refused to accept Henry's attempt to set her aside and annul their marriage partially because she was in love with her husband, but, she admitted, her main reason was because allowing him to do so would mean her daughter, Mary I, would be declared legally born out of wedlock and therefore unable to inherit the throne. By the end, she was reduced to living in near poverty because she refused to speak with anyone who did not address her as 'Queen,' and Henry VIII left her to rot in damp, unhealthy houses, and severed all contact between Katherine and Mary. Given that Katherine suffered six pregnancies (Mary was her fifth child) and only Mary survived infancy, it's no wonder.

*** Inverted with the dinosaur's winged cousins, the pterosaurs; for a long time, scientists thought that pterosaurs would have nested very much like birds and reared their young like them too. Now it's known, however, that pterosaurs mostly just laid their eggs and were done with them. Wasn't much of a problem for the young, though, as baby pterosaurs (called "flaplings") were capable of flight shortly after birth.

*** Inverted with It's unclear as to whether this would have applied to the dinosaur's winged cousins, the pterosaurs; for a long time, scientists thought that pterosaurs would have nested very much like birds and reared their young like them too. Now However, evidence for their reproductive behavior is scant. The same applies to the long-necked sauropod dinosaurs, as, whilst what are implied to be nesting colonies have been found (particularly Auca Mahuevo in South America) it's known, however, unclear as to whether or not the adults stuck around.
** Their distant oceanic cousins may have also applied for this, as a fossil found in North America implies
that pterosaurs mostly just laid plesiosaurs may have given birth to live young and practiced parental care. Woe betide any predator that was stupid enough to try and go after a baby ''Liopleurodon''. Averted with mosasaurs however; fossils have indicated, like their eggs and were done with them.
