Being a mother is not always easy.

Three lionesses arrive and one male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop. Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love.

  1. All simply adorable/beautiful images. Loved the foxes, the chameleon, the wind-blown lion, and the tree full of lions… also the three froggies, the lion story, and the wolves.

    *By the way, the mama and baby ‘leopards’ are actually cheetahs 😉

  2. Great photographs. How I wish There was a way human beings could decipher the animal language. Surely it would save a great number of disappearing species.

    What is common is the motherly love for the young ones.
    Some of the animals I have seen for the first time in these photographs.
    Thanks.

  3. You have cheetahs listed as leopards. Ever notice that cheetahs look like they were made from leftover parts?
    Thanks for your astounding site!

  4. Thanks Carolyne, Someone else pointed that out and I forgot to change it. Will now. I think cheetahs look like ballet dancers, long legged and graceful.

  5. Dusky–these are awesome, adorable, beautiful, funny and precious! Just wonderful!

  6. Sorry for the multiple comments. I didn’t think they were registering. But I could make multiple comment on how much I like and appreciate this website, to which a friend sent me a link this morning.

  7. The one in the middle of the lions trying to save the cub on the cliff is a male sub-adult. You tell by the mane is starting to grow around his face and neck. And why would the pic of the chipmunk must be photoshopped?

  8. The lionesse saving the baby made me weep with relif at the sheer deter ination of a mother for her cub. Such a happy endkng. My favorite of all.
