    This story is from way back however, they're currently airing the whole documentary on Animal Planet. In this video the lady describes it as "a contradiction of nature". I remember a few years ago that a lioness (cannot remember if it's this one) adopted six calfs and actually mourned the death of her youngest when it was killed by male lion. What's your thoughts on this video? Personally I find it extraordinary that this predator is risking pride segregation and her own life. I really recommend that you watch these documentaries which are being broadcasted.

    Here's a little clip- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mD5bCNvAihU

    I don't get your comment, how is it relevant to the thread?

    Anyway, I've just found out this lioness stayed with the calf for 8 hours before letting it run to it's mother. The calf had just been born and was struggling to walk and if the lioness hadn't protected her the nearby Hyenas would've ate her. Once the mother acknowledged the lioness was protecting the calf she became less worried and stood down. The guys who followed this lioness realised she was doing this more often than they thought, she had adopted something like 7 calfs for small periods of time after the were born to protect them from other predators. Nobody is sure why she's doing this however, it's been stated that the lioness could've lost her young to predators and thus was trying to help other mothers.

    The lioness has been named 'the blessed one'.
