At the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, a mother wildebeest gave birth to her calf — and she had an audience.
Bystanders pulled out a variety of recording devices to capture the incredible moment.
As the wildebeest walked across the plains, the calf hung from her body before finally making its debut into the world. Instantly, it was greeted by another young wildebeest; the mothers likely timed their pregnancies to raise the calves together.
Moments like this prove that life still overpowers death in Africa.
