Nurture in Nature

How do animal parents teach baby animals the life-skills that they need to survive and thrive in the wild? Is it all just instinct, or does some of it have to be tought? Becoming a Tiger is a great book: intruiging, well-written, funny, and thought provoking. One need not conclude that motar ha'adam min habehemah ayin [man is just another animal] to realize that this has implications for human education, too (though I'm not quite sure what they are....).
