Photo and caption by Sarah Batley

We came across a large family of baboons while on safari, and this particular baboon had a very ominous feel about him from the start. This photo was taken just moments before he started a vicious fight with another dominant male, leading the entire troop to disperse into the wind.

Location: Tarangire National Park, Tanzania
