Survival of the Fittest: Baboons’ Heroic Efforts in the Face of Crocodile Threats


This incredible scene was captured by Craig Beal during a tour of the Kwando Lebala reserve in Bwabwata National Park, Botswana.

Specifically, while drinking with his fellow humans at a river, an unlucky baboon was dragged into the water by a crocodile. Attacked by surprise, the baboons fought back fiercely and tried to pull the crocodile close to the shore..

At the same time, the baboons standing on the shore rushed to attack the swamp killer to rescue their fellows. After a few minutes of struggle, the crocodile had to accept to let go of the prey. Losing a piece of food right in his mouth, the crocodile had to turn his head and leave.


Baboons (Cercopithecidae) are a family of five species of monkeys that live in Asia and Africa. They have a large head and a long, dog-like muzzle. Baboons move on all four limbs. They have a weight of 14-40 kg and a body length of 45 to 70 cm.

Extremely intelligent and highly social, baboons live and move in packs. They communicate with each other by chirping. With large teeth and strong limbs, baboons are a formidable opponent for most animals of their size.
