It’s not just humans who take extraordinary measures to raise and nurture children, the entire animal kingdom is rife with moms who love and care for their babies profusely. If you thought your mom spent sleepless nights changing diapers, animal moms probably have to deal with a lot more poop, fur, and predators.
In celebration of mothers, both human and animal, Bright Side presents you with 20 amazing photographs of baby animals with their moms that can make any human heart melt.
