This Mother Giraffe Defended Her Baby From A Whole Pride of Lions. Nice Job Mom

A photographer named Barbara Westbrook fired off some amazing photographs of a mother giraffe defending her young calf from an entire pride of lions, who were out for blood. I’m sure any mother would do the same to protect her child, the amount of courage she shows in the face of five┬álions chasing her precious baby is quite astonishing.

The footage comes from the Kichehe Bush Camp in the heart of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Masai Mara region of Kenya, Africa.
