And now for something fun. How about photos of a lioness saving her little lion cub?

These photos, taken in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Park, show a lion cub who falls down a steep ravine. The little cub struggles but looks like it will fall further.

Other lions try to rescue the little tyke but they find the cliff too steep.

The mama lioness comes to the rescue by going down the treacherous slope and bringing her little one back up. She carries it in her mouth and then gently grooms it afterwards.

How is that for heartwarming?
