    An adventurous and surprisingly kind monkey in Kruger National Park in South Africa unknowingly recreated an opening scene from Disney’s all-time masterpiece The Lion King. Or maybe the primate really was completely aware of the reference when it did so?

    According to safari guide Kurt Schultz, a lost lion cub was surrounded by baboons – but instead of attacking the little predator, one of the primates took the kitty up high into a marula tree and comforted it, holding the cub like Rafiki held baby Simba in the animated movie.
