A mother’s love knows no bounds or so goes the adage. A video on Twitter is a testament that this saying not only applies to human mothers but also to mothers in the animal kingdom.

“Mother saved its kid getting washed away & escorts her to safety sweetly below her legs. Herd waits for them to join. Incredible social bonding in animal world,” IFS officer captioned the video on Twitter.
