'UNUSUAL SIGHTING': Male baboon spotted grooming a lion cub in South Africa's Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park on Saturday — he spotted a large male baboon carrying a tiny lion cub on a tree. But, what makes the occurrence even more surprising is that the baboon was grooming the cub as if it were one of its own babies, he explained to the Associated Press. “The baboon was grooming the lion cub as if it was a baby baboon,” Schultz told the AP. “Male baboons do a lot of grooming but the care given to this lion cub was the same care given by a female baboon to one of her own young.” Schultz said he had never seen anything like it during his two-decade career, and he quickly took photographs of the rare display. A video of the sight was also posted to Instagram and has since received more than 126,000 views.
