If there's one thing in common amongst all youngsters, they sure do love to pester their mothers! And through-out the animal kingdom there seems to be no exception.

Take this young West Caucasian Tur for example. Here we have a mother trying to enjoy some peace and quiet, but there always seems to be that one sibling that can't keep well enough alone. This young tur starts by nibbling his mother's back, then her ear and even bites at her horn. At one point she tries shrugging him off, but when he realizes he isn't getting the attention he wants, he decides to jump on her back. Unfazed, she appears to have the same look mothers everywhere have, asking themselves - When is it nap time?
