Male Baboon

Full grown male baboon, assigned by the alpha male, if necessary, to guard and defend the females and infants as they drink from the stream. Such an appointment by the alpha male that this individual, like a similar male guarding the other end, indicates that they rank high in the group's hierarchy. [Big Tom's, Hwange NP, Zimbabwe].
