It’s a happy Mother’s Day indeed for these wild (and incredibly cute!) families

SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS
We couldn’t possibly measure the love between Rothschild’s giraffe Katharina and her baby, Katja, at Germany’s Opel Zoo.
LOVE YOU BEAR-Y MUCH
Someone needs a bear hug.
In no time, white lion mom Azira is going to hear her little ones roar – but we’ll assume she’s enjoying the peace and quiet until then.
Ah, a much-needed break for mom, which begs the question: What do baby squirrel monkeys dream about?
SO HIPPY TOGETHER
There’s a lot to love about the bond between this hippopotamus and her newborn at Mexico City’s Chapultepec Zoo.
LOOK OF LOVE
Koola the gorilla only has eyes for her little one, Nora, whom she welcomed at Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo.
It’s a family affair for this adorable quintet of meerkats at the Erfurt, Germany, zoo.
A HOLD ON YOU
In our dreams, this photo was snapped at the Berlin, Germany, zoo just before Sally the gray langur began telling her baby a bedtime story.
