Lions fear this mighty animal

Shivam Verma

Baboons are known for their aggressive behaviour, especially when threatened or protecting their young.

Tigers and lions fear baboons because they are known to fight fiercely in groups.

They are not easy prey; their strength in numbers and aggressive defence tactics can pose a significant threat even to tigers and lions.

Baboons live in highly organised social groups called troops, which can consist of up to 200 individuals.

They are omnivores, feeding on a variety of foods including fruits, seeds, insects, and small mammals.

Baboons have long, dog-like snouts, close-set eyes, and powerful jaws with sharp canine teeth.

Baboons use a complex system of vocalisations, facial expressions, and body language to communicate within their troop.
