Any ideas on how caring for young (if your actual creature can) will be like? Will the possibility to form close bonds with offspring or maybe even teach them to hunt/ fend for themselves? Thoughts? Ideas? Discuss...?

I always imagined that NPC members of your species would learn from your actions. In a way you would decide how they acted based on how you acted. If you avoid a certain animal, other members of your species will avoid it. If you see a tree with fruit in it, you could climb it to grab the fruit and other members of your species would adopt the behavior as well.
Would it not also be dependent upon your species and their kingdom as well as class (taxonomy)? This would lead to further fine tuning once you obtain a culture. It would be capable of being tweaked by Atrox's interpretation, as well, with your actions possibly being fueled by your own perceptions of the kingdom and class. Thus, if you have a mammalian, perhaps you would colour your interactions to better portray it as we see it in real life? I mean, you would still have the capacity to go against the grain, but "immersion can not be patched" and once you teach your organism to behave erratically... well...

Taxonomy will not actually affect your creature at all. You won't be restricted to behave in line with Earth classifications.
I'll have a think about this question.
