These 22 Cute Baby Animals Love To Shower Their Moms With Attention

Being a mommy is having some kind of next-level responsibility and also nerves to deal with all that responsibility. Moms in the animal kingdom are no exception to this statement. But at the end of the day, it’s the most rewarding job in the world. No matter the species, babies feel safest in their mommy’s arms and that often means not leaving their side for even a second.

Here are 22 photos of baby animals ‘killing’ their mommies with the attention that we thought defined the term ’’cuteness overload’’ for you to enjoy. Take a look for yourself!

“I worked a day-job for six years after college. It’s a long story, but I was at a low point in my life. I was really worried that I would never be able to make it full time in wildlife photography. And I was living with a guy who was a total mistake (a seven year long one!). My life was just really not what I wanted it to be. Then one day an email came binging into my inbox that gave me the opportunity to fulfill my dream project to go to Africa and photograph cheetahs in Kenya’s Masai Mara. . In that moment I knew I had to radically change my life. So I quit the day job, dumped the boyfriend, put everything I had in storage, drained my savings account and hopped on a plane to Africa. I thought I would stay three weeks but I wound up staying three years.” – @suzieszterhas . We love inspiring stories of triumph and change! You can hear more stories like these from incredible photographers in our new guide, officially available tomorrow!
