The scene from the 1994 classic is one of the most famous images in the Disney universe.
In the film, baboon Rafiki holds Simba the lion cub up for the rest of the animals to see him. The animals, that are native to South Africa, are often found in open savannah and open hills around Africa.
Dafna, from Israel, said: ‘I couldn’t believe it when I saw an adult baboon holding a baby, looking exactly like Simba in the Lion King. ‘It was just a split second, but it was fascinating to watch! ‘They were all in the same group so no harm was done to any of the animals.’
