Monkey Hunters 1x47

Lions rarely hunt baboons. These large monkeys are armed with dangerous teeth, which makes them hard to catch and usually not worth the risk or effort. But there is one place in Africa’s Great Rift Valley where baboons are plentiful and lions have learned to catch them. During the dry season, herds of animals come to the river in Tarangire National Park to drink. It is a time of plenty for the predators, but when it rains on the surrounding plain, the herds abandon Tarangire. The predators then only have the resident animals to hunt. Desperation forces the lions to target unusual prey: the baboons.
