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 Botswanas 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.
