In the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana, something very strange happened.
The pictures that photographer Graham Dyer took show new ways that animals of the same and different species connect and act in the wild.
In these pictures, you can see a group of lions on a normal hunt. The group stops when a lioness sees a hurt fox cub lying in the middle of the dirt road. The fox is in bad health because it hurt its back and broke both legs. He begs the strong lioness for help in a very weak way.
Interestingly, the lioness decides to save the helpless baby fox because she feels like a mother. As she stands by the helpless fox, she tells her pups not to bother him. The other people in the pride don’t like this idea, though.
Soon, a mean lion comes up to the lioness and asks about this unusual arrangement. He doesn’t understand why she would protect a simple guy. But the kind lioness keeps her promise to save the little fox no matter what, even if it means going against her family.
Finally giving in to what the lioness wants, the lion leaves the fox alone. The fox tries to stand up again after some time and makes it back to his house. He says goodbye to his adopted mother and then disappears into the forest of trees. This amazing thing that the kind lioness did has completely blown us away!
