A baboon at breakfast - Nicholas Dyer (UK), finalist in the "mammal behavior" category

It was thought that wild dogs did not attack baboons. However, in recent years, the photographer has observed three packs, living in the bottom of the Lower Zambezi Valley in Zimbabwe, who hunted them regularly. This unfortunate baboon served lunch for nine hungry puppies. After devouring it, the small wild dogs started a macabre game with the monkey's head.
