Protective zebra mother over her calf

Safety really matters in the perilous world of a baby zebra, keeping to the center of the herd as much as possible and dodging the large hungry jaws of cheetahs, hyenas and lions on a daily basis. The mother does the parenting and will nurse for up to 18 months and keeping a close eye on the calf.
