Check out some other insanely adorable photos Maniscalco managed to capture of this little family!

Make sure to always look both ways before crossing the road! A lesson this mama leopard knows quite well, and teaching her cubs to do so from the looks of things!

You can see her go out into the road, stop traffic, and then come back to safely take her cubs across. Now, that's a good mama. But, you know kids, they'll disobey and make a mess of things! This mama never leaves their side, though. 

What absolute cuties!

Endangered Gorilla Is Expecting 1st Baby In New Orleans' Zoo

What beautiful news! 

13-year-old Tumani is excepting her very first baby! The critically endangered gorilla, who currently resides at the New Orleans' zoo, is already being trained in preparation for the bundle of joy! Tumani has been given a "doll" to care for, but since a stuffed doll doesn't look anything like a gorilla, it could be easily torn apart. 

Instead, they come up with another idea. Audubon Zoo's chief veterinarian, Dr. Robert McLean, explained that they created a "rugged section of canvas firehose tubing has been woven roughly to the proportions and weight of a 4-pound newborn gorilla."

"I haven't seen it myself, McLean continued. "Apparently it's pretty ugly but it does the job."

Tumani is a western lowland gorilla. In 2016, there was only an estimate of 362,000 in the wild, and that number falls about 2.7% a year. And according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, by 2082, those numbers might plummet to 80%. 

Unfortunately, due to diseases, such as Ebola, habitat loss, and illegal hunting, their population is plummeting quickly. 

And all the more reason to celebrate Tumani and her baby to be. We wish this mama a healthy delivery and a healthy baby!

Lera, the Maine Coon, had kittens back at the end of 2017, and sometimes, we like to just watch simple videos such as this one. 

A simple video of a mom and her babies, two minutes of purity and simplicity. Who needs more than that? 

This mama is carefully watching her playful kittens, and talking with them. How we wish we could understand, but we do know whatever she is saying, it's coming from a place of love.

This group of puppies, in pup-ticular, are just too cute!

Learning to swim is at first very scary stuff, but you just got to go for it and take that plunge! Of course, with someone to supervise you and in this case, there were a few supervisors! Some hoomans and a very proud mama lab! 

Watch these puppies take on swimming for the very first time! They all did so well!

There's nothing like a mother's love. 

These 22-days-old baby bunnies just wanted to feel that love even if it means laying next to Bailey, the adorable golden retriever, and adopting him as their mom. 

We're melting.

This poor baby dolphin got caught in a fisherman's deadly net, around the Italian island of Procida, Naples, as the mother helplessly didn't leave its side. Luckily,  the baby dolphin was freed by a kind fisherman, who happened to be there, and the mother celebrated her baby's freedom by jumping for joy! 

It is physically impossible not to smile when she's the mother's reaction!

You might remember a video we recently shared featuring a limping mother who leads a man into the bushes to where her kittens were. This is the same mother and kittens and their story continues! Here you can see the 5 extremely hyperactive kittens playing and running around like man while their loving mother is being very, very patient with them. As the kittens fight with each other, mama cat seems to just be waiting for them to tire themselves out and settle down. 

All we know is that we love this family.
