Lioness Kills Baboon And Finds Its Baby. What Happened Next Is Just Incredible!

Photographer Evan Schiller and his wife, Lisa Holzwarth are passionate about saving the big cats and other animals of the world. They have traveled on safari trips to Africa three times over the last few years, taking photographs and writing about their adventures.

On one of their game drives in northern Botswana’s Selinda area, they came across 30 to 40 baboons charging through the bush. The baboons were frightened by something and then two lionesses came out to rush the baboons into the trees. Soon two more lioness joined in.

One baboon tried to run and got snatched by the jaws of a lioness, but there was a baby holding on to its dying mother.
