For Mother’s Day, pictures of mama animals with babies

One of the highlights of traveling to exotic places is seeing mother animals with their babies, so here is a collection of some pictures I’ve taken over the years. They range from amphibians in Panama to orangutans in Borneo. I hope you enjoy.

And happy Mother’s Day!
