Holding On to My Mother!

Species: Leopard | Location: Porini Lion Camp, Kenya

I will always hold on to my mother! Or anything of her's.

The mother leopard was resting on a tree, however the cub didn't want to sit idle! A bundle of joy, she leapt and jumped around, precariously balancing herself (while my heart was popping out of my mouth in fear) then she held on to her mom's tail, watching the Savannah from her little starry eyes! She let the world know how mothers play a key role! For a cub, mother is all the strength and life. This mercurial cub ensured she had her mom's strength and safety in whatever she could hold on to! Even a tail!

Perhaps she wanted to send a message to this world—She is my mom and I stand protected!
