Lioness Adopts Baby Antelope (Just After Eating Its Mother)

Nature photographer Adri De Visse captured some incredible scenes of lioness adopting a helpless baby antelope just after she killed its mother.

After eating a Ugandan Kob, the lioness noticed the orphaned baby. She started roaring to make it go away, however, later her maternal instincts took over, and she picked the baby antelope like it was her own cub.

While in some pictures it looks like the lioness is about to eat the calf,  visitors in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, later said that they saw the baby antelope running around unharmed.
