Kurt said primates, including baboons, in the Kurt Safari area often hang out around lions and leopards resting areas. Therefore, it is likely that this monkey was watching when the mother lion went hunting to “steal” the young lion, so what to do is not clear.
In The Lion King, Rafiki appears to be a wise, gentle, and extremely considerate of Simba’s safety. However, life is not like a movie, the reality is a bit more cruel than what we see on the small screen. Kurt shared that not sure that the baboon took care of the lion like in the movie, but on the contrary, he had heard that sometimes these monkeys even execute their booty. Besides, baboons also often move in herds in large numbers, having the advantage of climbing on trees, so the ability of the mother lion to claim success is extremely low.
