Out Nature can be a brutal place, but sometimes we get to see an unexpected behaviour from animals that can leave us all shock. And one such is the moment a lioness grabbed a female baboon by the scruff of the neck while her baby clung onto her limp body.
The baby baboon is safe, for now, and the lioness has been very gentle and tender towards him,and the baboon is not afraid But then, just as it seemed the ordeal was over, something even more remarkable happens.
However, during the fracas, a male baboon – who had been watching from a nearby tree – saw an opportunity to save the baby from the clutches of the lions.
He swooped down undetected and whisked the baby to safety in the tree tops.
