A tiger carries its tiny 6 week old cub in its powerful jaw. 

It is common for tigers to carry their young in such a way when they see a potential threat and the cubs are unable to run quickly on their own. 

This cute scene was captured in Ranthambhore national park in Rajasthan, India, by photographer Dhritiman Mukherjee, 43.
