Feeding the baboons is very dangerous, they are extremely strong, much stronger than a human & has canines to match.

Seen them take apart a leopard once, interesting attack method: They jump in& bite, then they kick away tearing a piece of flesh. :shock: A bloody affair indeed.

Gunner knows perfectly well who RP is! :P

Great pics! :clap:


BTW, standing on the lady's haunches while doing the deed is perfectly normal, and a brilliant adaptation, if I may say so!

Yes, that's me in the last pic, bothering nobody and reflecting philosophically on the sins of other members of the troop... :roll:

(Notice the bottle on the bottom left corner... :| )
