Baboon On Trail
One would think that the baboon troop walking down this road would be very vulnerable to predation by lions or a group of hyenas. The alfa male in the front seems not to be worried. He has a couple of mature, senior fellows (like the one in the previous image), bringing up the rear. The large male baboon is a very tough, fearless animal who considers his being chosen for this role an honor, and it gives him high rank in the troop. Two of these full-grown fellows, with their large canine teeth and strong jaws, could inflict serious injuries to a lioness. [Seronara, Tanzania].
