We all know Momma Power is some of the strongest stuff on earth. Ever wondered how your mom knew exactly what you were up to at all times, could outsmart you without trying and somehow still have dinner on the table at the end of the day? That’s just some of that good, old-fashioned MP.
Well, let me introduce you to Monkey Momma Power. Specifically, the power of a mother monkey protecting her baby from a frickin’ tiger. If you think you can outsmart either of these animals, think again — clearly, both of them want something and they want it bad.

10. …Wait. In a Tree?
Whoa! Okay, not what I was expecting.
Here we meet our protagonist, Mister Tiger, who has decided to take on the challenge of climbing a tree. He’s starting off at a disadvantage, given that he’s already made an enemy of that age-old foe: the force of gravity.
9. Enter Our Antagonist, Momma Monkey
Alright, I’m calling Momma Monkey our antagonist but I really feel for the poor girl here. Looks like she was just sitting in a tree, minding her own business. Also, trees are really more monkey territory than they are tiger territory. This feels like a battle on home turf for her.
8. Okay, Just Gimme a Sec Here…
Mister Tiger’s gotta stop and get his balance, so if you could just wait patiently for him to attack you, that would be great, Momma. Gotta give props here — this tiger is no Simone Biles, but he definitely shows some promise for the balance beam.
But wait, what’s his next move? Click on…
7. HELLO I’M HERE TO PAY A VISIT
Hey, that was fast! I definitely didn’t see this graceful leap to the top of the tree coming. Maybe he’s just popping in to say hello? Seems like odd behavior for a tiger, but then again, the dude’s already in a tree — clearly he plays by his own rules.
6. Momma’s Outta Here
If Mister Tiger was making a social call, this was Momma Monkey telling him that it’s really just not a great time. But like a dude in a dive bar, MT can’t take a hint! Where are you going? I’ll walk with you! Why are you climbing away so fast?
