“What a lucky find this was, seeing something as rare as a baboon with a leopard cub in the Pilanesberg Private Game Reserve. That, while Lauren Pretorius spotted another baboon, in the Kruger, with another leopard cub, round about the same time of year!

44-year-old Paul Wood told LatestSightings.com about this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“This video was taken in 2020 just after 11:00 AM in the Pilanesberg National Park, on Moloto Rd.”

“We were slowly heading back towards our lodge after an early morning game drive, when we came upon a large troop of baboons. We were enjoying the spectacle, as we hadn’t really had any good sightings of baboon on our trip. The troop was moving down the road in the opposite direction from us and we gradually made our way past them. As we came around a bend in the road, we all saw what turned out to be the very last member of the troop, a young adult male baboon, and he was visibly clutching something small under his belly with one arm. At this point, the baboon was only 10 m or so in front of our vehicle.”
“Within seconds, and with all eyes on him, he juggled what he was carrying and we all gasped as it was clearly a tiny leopard cub. The initial reaction from myself, and the guide, was that the cub was surely already dead and the baboon had simply picked it up while foraging, or, perhaps, had even been involved in its death. However, after a few more seconds, it was obvious that the cub was very much alive!”
“At that point, the sighting took on a whole new aspect as we were confronted, in nature, with something that seemed somehow… unnatural. An adult baboon shouldn’t be carrying around a leopard cub! The cub belongs with its mother! I think we were all hoping that the baboon would lose interest in the cub and leave it behind so that there might be the smallest chance that it could be reunited with its mother. But, as we watched, it was clear that the baboon was very interested in the cub and was intent on taking it along with him. He would sit quietly with it, occasionally looking down to check on it, and even groomed the cub as we watched. He was quite gentle with it, if a little clumsy, but did not appear to want to harm it in any way.”
"The baboon was some way behind the rest of the troop. However, he was still keeping up with them, sitting a while with the cub, then picking it up with one arm and continuing down the road a little as the distance between him and the rest of the troop grew too big. Eventually, he followed the rest of the troop off-road and into the long grass, picking up pace as he re-joined the others. Not long after leaving the road the baboon disappeared over a small ridge, down an embankment, and moved quickly out of sight."
"I don’t know if a male baboon with a live leopard cub has ever been seen/recorded before. It’s the first I’ve ever heard of this specific combination. For me, personally, it was certainly a first and I don’t expect to ever see something like that again. It was an incredible sighting, but bitter-sweet for all of us watching, because we knew the cub would not be able to survive more than just a few hours away from its mom."
"When you’re on safari, record everything. Don’t stop recording. You can edit later. This is not something you are likely to ever see again!"
Later, Lauren Pretorius, from laurenpretoriusphotography.com/, sent us a few photos of a baboon carrying a leopard cub. We thought that it must be the same sighting, as we had never seen anything like this before. But no! It was a different event completely. Lauren had been visiting Olifants, and spotted this baboon just after it found a Leopard cub.
Since these two sightings, and the one of the baboon with the lion cub, also around the same time of year, we haven't received any more sightings of this kind.

    He just wants a kitty cat, but doesnt have meow mix or tender vittles or saucers of milk. The baboons need a way to feed their kitties, then they'll have their leopard army.

      not, in that case they would kill them fastly. Baboons and other monkeys sometimes take cubs of other species as "pets", but they end dying because obviously the monkeys don't know how to feed them. If they want to kill another animal they will do it quickly, like when they hunt flamingos or young gazzelles.

    Baboons are very intelligent... The male one could possibly been grooming it for future defense. These creatures are very intelligent. If the cub survives it will protect the herd. Just like shepherd dog raised in a sheep kraal it grows thinking it's a sheep and when wolves or intruders come it attacks and protect the sheep
