While wild animals have featured in a number of videos since the lockdown across the world, be it enjoying a stroll through the streets or breaking into people's garages, a video of langur rescuing its baby has taken the internet by storm.
In the video, a baby langoor can be seen struggling on a wire while attempting to cross it to reach the other side where a group of monkeys is waiting on the ledge of a building's roof.
While the baby monkey continues to struggle and call out for help, its mother can be seen intervening and shaking the wires rigorously to help the little one reach safety. When the baby remains unsure of the jump, the mother herself jumps on to the wire and rescues the baby.
The video of the magnificent rescue operation was shared on Twitter by IFS Parveen Kaswaan, who wrote, "A rescue operation by mother. How can it fail?"
The video has been shared by thousands of netizens with many impressed by the mother langoor's tenacity in protecting its offspring. Many also compared the primate mom to human mothers who were equally protective of their young ones.
