Nature has always taught a lot about life to all the living creatures.
Human beings have often referred it as, Mother Nature. It is surely one of the best gifts given to us by God. Mother nature has given us life, oxygen, shelter, food and almost everything required for living.
But, this time it gave something much more than expected. Some of the wild animals served as mother for abandoned children, who were left to die by their parents. Children who are raised by animals are known as "feral children". Even if we look back in history, there are number of tales about the children who were raised by wolves and other wild animals. It is surprising to see such an unusual yet caring relationship between an animal and a human child.
There is so much we can learn from them. When humans forget to love and care, many domesticated animals teach them the real meaning of love. Many of these children didn't even know who their real parents were but, destiny had much more for them. They were raised in a different environment as compared to normal children. It made them special and kept them in direct contact with one of the most beautiful creations of God: The nature.
Let's have a look at few of them.
