Baby monkey clings onto its dead mother, clutched between a lion’s jaws… before another member of the pride ends its life too


This is the heart-breaking moment a baby monkey clung onto the corpse of its mother in the jaws of a lion before another lion finished off the infant animal.

The brutal reality of nature was laid bare at South Africa‘s Zimanga Private Game Reserve as the 400-pound lion caught and devoured the mother monkey in less than a minute.

Striking photographs show the baby monkey desperately clinging onto the body of its mother, which dangles limply from between the jaws of a lion.


The actions of a second lion in the pride sees the little monkey lose its grip on its bloodied mother and tumble helplessly to the ground.

Moments later, the defenceless animal is scooped up by another predator and killed.
