Kenya Samburu Game Reserve. A lioness approached a newborn oryx and protected it as if it were her own child. Like her real mother, the lion desperately protects her baby in a heavy rain.

This work won the Special Jury Prize at the World Nature and Wildlife Film Festival held in Toyama City in 2003. The narration this time is announcer Takayuki Hasumi! This is a remake of the one that aired in September 2002, «Doubutsu Kisoutengai!».
