what can someone say about nature... A predator helping the preservation of an enemy species.. Nature just looks after itself.. i wish we could participate as selflessly.

#1 - I doubt it was consciously preserving the offspring of an enemy species. It was most likely a mixture of curious, playful, and confused. Even so, it is still heartwarming, and absolutely fascinating to watch.

Nature never ceases to amaze.

#8 if that's true, i don't see why the camera crew didn't do anything to save it, if they already had all the footage they needed, they could have hauled its ass to a zoo...

#10 Perhaps they didn't do that cause they wanted to preserv balance in nature? None of this actually happened with human influense so its better to let nature untouched.

Honestly, I think it was some kind of simple chemistry that naturaly occurs in every newborn to stop mother from accidentaly kill it.

@10 : They didn't have all the footage they needed until they got the footage of the baby dying.

@1 : I think a species that made a habit of preserving the offspring of its natural enemies wouldn't survive very long.

i don't see any protection here, the Leopard instinct is telling him the Baboon is died! something popping out of the died and wonder around for the Leopard that thing is still died! ( Leopard doesn't interpret little Baboon movements as alive! this is just our conception as human) the hunting instinct is kept off! the confusion of the Leopard turned on other instincts, maybe trigged by the size of the little Baboon...

even with sophisticated human brain, you'll get the same reaction

At 3:17 my heart just sinks, that little, tired and resigned look on the lil'ones face...Seen so much in his short life, :(
Intriguing lil film as it's sad, moving, horrid and heartbreaking at the same time. By right; ::(|)
