Story from behind the lens: As Christina and I continued exploring our first Safari adventure in East Africa, we had just asked Doug if the many Olive Baboons we saw were territorial. We had seen many groups in transit with their young, in water holes or grooming each other. However, I noticed one male that seems to be on his own or in some pursuit. I asked Doug to stop and quickly prepared to see the confrontation. This was an epic battle of “wills” as they challenged each other until the intruding baboon seceded.
