Baboon adopts bush baby (Reuters)

A seven-months-old yellow baboon (Papio cynocephalus) drinks milk as it plays with a Galagos (L) also known as a bushbaby at the Animal Orphanage in the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) headquarters in Nairobi, June 10, 2011. Defying nature, the Yellow Baboon, rescued in Maralal (northern Kenya) has quickly adopted a Galagos, rescued in Nyeri (central Kenya), after meeting at the orphanage giving it affection and protection as if it were her own offspring. Yellow baboons inhabits savannas and light forests in the eastern Africa while Galagos are small, nocturnal primates native to continental Africa.
