Aww! Sometimes a hug from mum is all you need.
He might be set to be king of the jungle one day, but this little lion cub is clearly still in need of a cuddle from mum.
The adorable moment was captured on camera by Clint Ralph, 55, in Maasai Mara, Kenya, while he was on a photographic safari.
Clint said: “We came across this pride of Lions in the marshland.
“They were mostly females with cubs, with one male in attendance.
“We stayed with the family for the morning capturing the cubs fooling around and playing with one another. Every once in a while one of the cubs would go over to their mum to reinforce the bond.
“It was so lovely to see.”
