20 Photos Proving the Safest Place in the World Is Next to Your Mom

Studies suggest that animals, especially dogs, can recognize their mothers even when they reach adulthood. The bond humans and other animals create with their mothers is very special as we tend to have a deep respect for it. Our DNA connection and the love we receive from our mothers make them feel like our “safe place,” no matter our species.

To show this loving connection, Bright Side selected 20 photos proving why our moms are always our safest place.
