Photographer Evan Schiller and his wife Lisa Holzwarth were on a game drive in the northern Botswana’s Selinda area the moment the witnessed something really incredible. Evan was taking photos of his usual subjects, ‘big cats’, that he and his wife have a passion for. All of a sudden, a troop of baboons came charging through a bush when two lionesses came by and something stunning happened.

A female baboon tried to run from the lioness, but could not outlast the predator. That’s when the photographers spotted a baby baboon falling off of it’s mother.

But the lioness looked at the baby with care, not the urgency of wanting to hurt it.

When young male lions approached, the lioness jumped to the defense of the baboon, refusing to let the lion inch closer to her new baby.

That’s when the baboon’s father swept in and took his baby back. He was waiting in a tree nearby. (Brilliant).

The baboon family was reunited, although missing one member, but the love the lioness showed to young baboon was a true testament to the nurture and unconditional love mothers can have for the young…no matter their species.
