Real life ’Lion King’: Baboon grooms lion cub in Kruger park

Safari operators and tourists in South Africa’s Kruger National Park were in for a treat over the weekend after they spotted a male baboon carrying and grooming a lion cub. The baboon took the cub atop a tree and preened it as if its own. ’I don’t see a chance of this poor cub surviving. The troop of baboons was large and a lion would not be able to get the young back’, a safari operator added.

ive heared of monkeys in india raising and training street dogs to protect their troops. Im tempted to think this would be something similar, but i agree that the cub is unlikely to survive givemln that his diet is too different. assuming another male wont kill him when he gets the chance.
