Cheetah Mom and Cub, Botswana

For a [female] cheetah the real danger is not losing a kill but losing her cubs. Ninety-five percent of cheetah cubs die before reaching independence. Hyenas kill them out of hunger, lions apparently out of bad habit. Female cheetahs deal with the threat by constantly moving, preferably before their rivals even know they’re around. They coexist as phantom species, slipping into temporary vacancies between prides of lions and packs of hyenas.

Baby Gelada, Ethiopia

Once they’re three months old, geladas ride their mothers jockey-style. Females have just four or five babies in a lifetime but invest a lot of time and energy taking care of them—it’s a ‘quality, not quantity’ strategy, says biologist Chadden Hunter, who has spent parts of the past six years with the animals in Ethiopia.

Giraffe Mother and Calf, St. Louis Zoo

Langur Monkey, India

In an image taken by a remotely operated 35-mm camera, a baby langur monkey clings to his mother’s chest in India’s Bandhavgarh National Park. Photographer Michael Nichols set up the cameras to capture tigers in action, but the active langur monkeys tripped the infrared beam thousands of times a day, using up so many rolls of film that he had to adjust the timer to operate during “tiger time”—late afternoon, when tigers prepared for their nightly hunt.
