Little ones (December 2008)

Elephants are experts in protecting their young ones. Their babies and toddlers are usually well hidden, in the centre of the group, invisible for outsiders. But sometimes the little ones get a bit more exposure.

Only to proof just how adorable they are, like this little jumbo in Masai Mara.

Just as cute, this young giraffe. Staying close to her mother is her best chance for survival.

A heart warming display of a mother’s love for her offspring: nursing one cub, while tenderly grooming the other.

Slightly older, this trio of adolescent cheetah brothers. Cheetahs are usually solitary animals, though it is not uncommon for the males to stick together for a while once they have left the nest.
