The photographer has caught a monkey and its infant recreating the famous Lion King “Circle of Life” scene, in which the mother lifts up her child.
Dafna Ben Nun, 38, captured the incredible real-life ‘Lion King’ moment while on a trip to Zimbabwe.
Dafna was amazed to observe the two monkeys reenacting a famous scene during her visit to South Africa to learn about the local wildlife.
The animals that are native to South Africa are often found in open savannah and open hills around Africa.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw an adult baboon holding a newborn, who looked exactly like Simba from The Lion King.” Dafna, an Israeli resident, explained.
It was only for a split instant, but it was fascinating to see!
“They were all in the same group, so no harm was done to any animals.”
