NOW FOR SOME MOMS AND BABES
Yikes! Watch out!
Being a mother is not always easy.
Clinging for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.
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.

Sometimes after a strenuous day, an animal just needs a rest.

AS EVER, I LOVED THIS! ESP. MOTHERS/BABES—SOME TRULY MEMORABLE ONES. THANKS FOR THIS GREAT WAY TO START THE DAY—LORIE
Wonderful, as always. The bug-eyed baby you asked about is a lemur.
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 😉
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.
You have cheetahs listed as leopards. Ever notice that cheetahs look like they were made from leftover parts?
Thanks for your astounding site!
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.
Dusky–these are awesome, adorable, beautiful, funny and precious! Just wonderful!
I think the animal you asked for is a lemur
The animal identified as a lemur by Patricia Selk — I thought it was a Dr. Seuss character.
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.
The animal you asked for is a lemur and I think lives in Madagascar
Thanks for the info. I think there was a movie recently about the lemurs of Madagascar. I’d love to see it.
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?
i believe that is a picture of a lemur-maybe a ring tailed lemur
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.
