The lioness, risking her own life, saved the baby from certain death.
It seems that the concept of “mother’s love” is not worth ranting once again.
Most people are well aware of the sacrifices a mother is willing to make for her child.
But, the more a person studies the animal world, the more it becomes clear that for many species of animals, maternal self-sacrifice is by no means an alien concept.
The Daily Mail reports that photographer Jean-Francois Largo took amazing pictures in Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve.
These pictures show how the mother of a lion cub, risking her own life, descends into a precipice in order to save her baby, who is about to fall down.
One wrong move by the mother, and both of them would have faced inevitable death.
Initially, 3 adult lions intended to help the baby. But then, the other 2 moved back, as the cliff was too steep even for their long and tenacious claws.
And only a caring and fearless mother dared to go down to her baby and saved him, literally lifting him in her teeth.
This is a truly unique photo shoot, showing people how little we know about animals and what selfless deeds they are ready for.
