Mouth brooding, also known as oral incubation and buccal incubation, is the care given by some groups of animals to their offspring (their brood) by holding them in the mouth of the parent for extended periods of time.

Although mouth brooding is performed by a variety of different animals, most notably Darwin's frog, fishes are by far the most diverse mouth brooders. Mouth brooding has evolved independently in several different families of fish.

A detailed and colourful watercolour painting from the publication Strange and Curious Creatures, written by Rupert Oliver and illustrated by Bernard Long. 1984.
