A baboon family in the South Luangwa Valley, Zambia taken last month. I could watch these animals for hours. Their expressions and behaviour are very human. They live in large troops and have a complex social structure with the males seeking dominance. After watching this group, we saw a male attack a baby, causing serious injuries, and other males trying to beat him off. No one seemed to know what had caused this unprovoked attack - alarming behaviour which also applies to homo sapiens.
