Being a mom myself, I know the power of a mama’s love for her child. That kind of love that makes you fiercely protective, the kind that will make you sacrifice any and everything for the good of your baby, the kind that reassures you that all that you do is worth it especially when you get an unexpected cuddle. That mama bear love isn’t reserved for bears or mamas of the human species.
It’s actually quite inspiring to see the lengths that animals will go through to protect their young. When I was growing up, people made comments along the lines of animals not having feelings or not knowing how to love to the capacity humans can. Having grown up with dogs that didn’t seem accurate to me but I never let that be more than someone’s opinion that I heard in passing. Watching these videos shows me that mamas of all kinds will do anything to protect and care for their babies.
This video is what prompted today’s post-
I started the next video 19 seconds in because there’s no need to see the baby bunnies in the hold the snake has them in. If you want to see it from the beginning by all means I just want to give you fair warning in case it’s disturbing to you…
This video was so incredible to me! The first half was so distressing to watch, I just wanted them to scoop that little elephant out of the water but the way they worked together and kept their cool was amazing!
I know this isn’t a mama bear saving her cub but further to animals not having feelings…it’s pretty incredible to see this bear save another animal.
Isn’t it amazing to witness animals showing compassion, love and caring for another animal? In what other ways are you inspired by animals? Have you come across a great video of a four legged mama or an animal showing compassion? Share it along with your thoughts on this post in the comments section!
