I always got nervous when the baboons would get close to the baby impalas. They can be down right vicious. Saw one eating a helmetted guinea fowl. Apparently the baboon was walking past the bird that was resting in the shade and just decided to snatch it up and eat it. Those guinea fowl are good sized birds but didn't stand a chance against the male baboon.

Hi all - Been away for a few days, but have lurked off & on.

Noticed the IR has been missing on the right of the camera for quite a while. Any official word on what's wrong and when it's gonna be fixed? Don't think it was the monkey visit, it was on the night after the night of their visit.

The impala have to be wary of the baboons, though. They will turn on the impala as fast as they "protect" them. I watched a documentary that talked about how the impala quietly leave the herd to give birth near the trees where babs hangs out. They rely on babs to sound the alarm if harm approaches. But in this particular instance, soon after the baby impala was born, the huge male baboon charged from a tree, grabbed the baby, took it to the tree, and killed it. Baboons are NOT to be trusted! LOL And apparently are VERY nasty tempered! Laughing out loud
Yikes! I guess they don't have those huge canines for nothing. I've heard that baboon populations close to humans can also become very aggressive, snatching food right out of your unsuspecting hands. They say you shouldn't eat anything around them.

A few days ago there was a discussion about the rut. I don't have the exact source that, I think, Ingwe quoted but I did find this one which is close enough: The Impala rut is in full swing and the impala noises continue right through the night with dramatic clashes between rival males. Baboon and impala are often together assisting the safety of the busy Impala.
I was surprised that they would "broadcast" their positions also Laughing out loud

Yes, all that impala info posted the other day was very interesting. It basically said the impala rams get so caught up in the rut, they don't even take time to eat, let alone lookout for predators. And they go right on through the night, moonlight permitting. Smiling

Maybe but I wouldn't think the Impala would be broadcasting their where abouts at night. LOL But they sure can make some scary noises when they get going. Smiling
