Unbelievable Story About A Baby Baboon

Leave a Comment
Photographer Evan Schiller and his wife Lisa Holzwarth dedicate a big part of their lives to animals. They are passionate about saving Big Cats and other animals all over the world. By using writing and photography, the two hope to raise awareness about the plight of these animals.

This couple was on a game drive in the northern Botswana’s Selinda area when they experienced something amazing. They were taking photographs when a big troop of baboons came charging through the bush. Two lionesses were nearby, and what happened next stunned the photographers.

A brave baboon attempted to make a run for it. Unfortunately, a lioness caught it. As the baboon died, the photographers noticed a baby baboon slowly disengaging itself from its underside.

They held their breath as the innocent, frail baby stood before the lionesses.

Miraculously, they didn’t harm him. In fact…
One lioness gently and curiously examined the baboon. He was frightened and hurt.
She softly picked him up in her mouth and settled down over him, watching.
The little one even tried to nuzzle the lion, not knowing what she was.
This behavioral twist was stunning, but that wasn’t even the most amazing part.
Young male lions approached, and the lioness rejected their advances, causing a scene.
That’s when the baby baboon’s father dashed in. He was waiting in a nearby tree, hoping to rescue his baby.
So he snatched the little baboon, twisting away from the lionesses and bringing the baby back to a tree.
The father baboon’s heroism paid off. Once he bravely saved his baby, he made his way over to a shade tree and the rest of his troop. After a time, the photographers saw that he baby was safely nestled in his father’s arms, resting.
It’s hard to say what’s more impressive: the lionesses gentle decision to protect the baby baboon or his father’s incredible bravery and rescue mission. Share this unbelievable story with others.

Shocking Pictures Of Polar Bear And His Trainer

Leave a Comment
Agee is unlike any other polar bear you’d ever see in captivity or in the wild. Her best friend is her human animal trainer, Mark Abbot Dumas. He took her in and began hand-raising her when she was only a tiny cub. Now, he can wrestle, play and train her while completely trusting her. Not everyone can take a long nap with a polar bear after a long day of work.

Mark Abbot Dumas is the only person you’ll see in a position like this.
Honestly, Mark is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear in this way.
But taking a little swim with Agee the bear is completely normal for Mark.
Mark and the 800lb bear are very close and share a lot of trust.
The trainer and his wife Dawn took in and trained Agee when she was only just eight weeks old.
She was a surplus cub at Kolmarden Zoo, Sweden. Instead of staying in a zoo, she was taken into a family and trained to be in movies.
Agee performs a variety of commands for Mark, but in exchange for her favorite treats. She loves to chow down on steak, cookies, salmon and chocolates. Her trainer believes that she actually loves her work. “They are extremely intelligent animals and you can see she gets enjoyment out of being stimulated through her work.”

She could have never lived in the wild, so it’s important to keep her busy. Her work and play with Mark makes her happy (even if she does get a little jealous when she sees him working with other women).
