A brave baboon attempted to make a run for it. Unfortunately, a lioness caught it. As the baboon died, the photographers noticed a baby baboon slowly disengaging itself from its underside.

The father baboon’s heroism paid off. Once he bravely saved his baby, he made his way over to a shade tree and the rest of his troop. After some time, the photographers saw that the baby was safely nestled in his father’s arms, resting.

damn nature, you cool.

Damn nature you scary. You also nice sometimes. But mostly you scurrrrry.
