This is the incredible moment a ferocious lioness allowed a baby baboon to nuzzle into her chest despite killing the youngster’s mother only moments before.

In a rare and unusual twist of nature, the predator not only spared the infant’s life but was also seen carefully carrying the youngster in its mouth and even tolerated the animal trying to suckle her.

The jaw dropping moment was photographed by golf course photographer, Evan Schiller, 53, and his wife Liza Holzworth , 51, who couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the tiny creature appear from beneath the corpse of its mother.

Despite making a run to safety, the miniature monkey soon attracted the attention of the lioness who noticed its desperate but unsuccessful attempts to climb a tree.
