Newborn white Bengal tiger really won’t give its poor mum a break

Newborn white Bengal tiger really won’t give its poor mum a break

Reminding us so much of how mothers will put up with the antics of their adorable children, this series of photos taken at the Novosibirsk Zoo in Russia, show an intimate moment between a newborn cub and its majestic mother. Taken by freelance photographer Alexander Lukin, the images show a playful white Bengal tiger cub climbing on its mothers face as she tries to take a nap.

The cub is one of a pair of newborns at the zoo, but its sibling was nowhere to be seen in the photos.
