Animal Photos Of The Week

In this week's roundup of the best animal photos we could find, we bring you some incredible shots of napping lions and their playful cubs.

Of course, we've got the usual round up mother nature's cutest babies, with zebras, giraffes and elephants to soak up your adoration.

And check out some wonderful pics from the only dog shelter in the Middle East to have a no-kill policy.

Vote for the best animal photo of the week!
