Mother and child, Rathnapura, Sri Lanka.

It is said that in the caring of its offspring, the cat carries the kitten by holding the infants neck in its mouth. The responsibility here is with the mother. The monkey on the other hand expects its infant to hold on tight to its mother's body and leaves the responsibility to the infant. Here you see a monkey-mother cuddling and protecting its baby.
