The dramatic rescue of a lion cub by his mother and three other female lions was witnessed by the photographer.

The lioness saved the youngster from impending death by risking her own life.

It appears that the idea of “mother’s love” is no longer worth shouting about. The majority of people are aware of the lengths to which a mother will go to protect her kid.

However, the more one examines the animal world, the more it becomes evident that maternal self-sacrifice is not an unfamiliar idea for many kinds of animals.

According to the Daily Mail, photographer Jean-Francois Largo captured incredible images in Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve.

These images illustrate how a lion cub’s mother falls onto a cliff. She was risking her own life, to save her young who is about to fall.

Both of them would have died if the mother had made a single mistake.

Three adult lions were first meant to assist the infant. The other two, however, retreated because the cliff was too steep for their long and tenacious claws.

Only a brave and caring mother had the courage to kneel to her kid and save him, physically lifting him in her teeth.

This is a one-of-a-kind picture session that demonstrates how little we know about animals and the altruistic acts to which they are capable.
