By putting her own life on the line, the lioness saved the cub from death.
It appears that the concept of “mother’s love” has lost its charm. The majority of people are aware of a mother’s readiness to go to great steps to protect her child.
However, the more one studies the animal kingdom, the more it becomes clear that maternal self-sacrifice is a common occurrence across many species.
Photographer Jean-Francois Largo, according to the Daily Mail, captured spectacular photographs in Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve.
The mother of a lion cub falls down a cliff in these images. She was putting her life on the line to save her child, who was about to fall.
If the mother had made a mistake, both of them would have died.
At first, three adult lions were supposed to help the baby. The other two, on the other hand, were forced to leave because the cliff was too steep for their long, tenacious claws.
Only a brave and caring mother would kneel to her child and literally lift him in her teeth to save him.
This is a one-of-a-kind photo shoot that illustrates how little we know about animals and their ability to perform altruistic actions.
