This tiger taking care of her cub is so endearing our hearts are growing. The Amur tiger cub above is four-months-old and living free on a nature reserve in England.

These animals are rare in the wild, but efforts to bring the species back have become commonplace in the United Kingdom. The release of this cub into the reserve to reunite with its mama took place on International Tiger Day in 2015.
