Photographer Captures the Tender Moments When a Leopard Hugs Her Cub

Even the fiercest animals can be sweet when it comes to cuddling with one of their kind. For instance, these pictures of mother leopard hugging with her baby prove that fact. This image which has gone viral on the internet portrays mother leopard and her cub snuggling together during a downpour in Kenya. Leighton Lum, the 32-year-old photographer was the person who immortalized this moment.


Turns out, the cub got scared by the downpour and tried to wake mommy up for some comfort. This is the moment mommy leopard gave her baby a hug, as a reassurance that everything was fine. We can all agree that Leighton was at the right place, on the right time. This sweet moment that was witnessed by him, is not one that many photographers encounter.


As we see in his photographs, the leopard wakes up and snuggles with her baby with a big smile on her face. Eventually, the cub got more playful and started climbing the surrounding trees.


It is a real joy getting the chance to witness these tender moments between animals, since that is not something we get the chance to do often. One thing that a lot of photographers have noticed is that, animal sighting has become much better due to the pandemic causing less people and vehicles to visit the area.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
