While baboons are primarily omnivorous, they can pose a threat to other animals, especially young predators.
Baboons are strong, intelligent, and can be aggressive. This is especially so when their territory is encroached upon or if a fellow family member is harmed.
Baboons and lions have since long had a very complicated relationship with one another, oftentimes marked by acts of revenge.
This incredible video shows us an extremely rare sight. It captures a young male baboon carrying and grooming something rather unexpected – a lion cub.
Although we can’t know for sure, the baboon probably kidnaped this lion cub as a form of revenge. Perhaps it started grooming it out of mere habit?
