I could totally see a baboon doing it. They do have massive teeth and are quite vicious. But WOW think about that being a daily pest!

how could a baboon bite through a skull.its teeth are no more than 8 cm
Umm think about what you just said. 8cm long basically 3.5" that could definately split a 3 month old's skull. Baboons are carnivorous. And witchcraft doesn't mean witches on brooms. In Africa they have many defferent beliefs, the witchcraft referred to is probably voodoo. Funny how none of her 5 children live to be over 1 year old. She must have really ticked off the wrong person.

wow..that was pretty gruesome..I feel sorry for the mother having to watch that...hey! maybe the baboon saw Faces of Death, when those guys ate the monkey brain..and decided to try human to see if it too is a delicacie..i guess us humans had it coming...yikes..ok that was bad. There is no doubt an adult Babbon would easily be able to bite open a 3 months old skull.

The part about the baby still breathing after its brain was eaten what I have a hard time believing..maybe it was still twitching because of nerves..but I hightly doubt still breathing. Anyway, sounds like it could of happened but the truth was probably stretched a bit.

*gags* It could happen. Baboons have immensly powerful jaws, strong enough to break an animals skull apart like a nut cracker and an almond! At 2 months a baby's skull is very soft, allowing for the brain to grow and as part of the birthing. Seems that it is quite possibly true, though i am not going to think of it much.*gags*

That is true. Baboons have REALLY powerful teeth. Think of a dog biting a 3 month olds head...a large dog...baboons are stronger than dogs.

Scary thought. hopefully its NOT true. But I believe it could happen.

Babies skull plates don't close until about 18 months, so yes, it is possible. The brain is one of the most nutritious parts of the body, and many animals instinctively know to eat the brain first - bears, for example, often eat only the brains of salmon and leave the bodies to rot.

However, the child could not breathe, or even twitch, without a brain. Not even for a few seconds. Brain death would be immediate with that type of injury, and any twitching would have stopped before the baboon had even dropped the baby. That statement makes the article suspect enough, without even the stupid supersticious witchcraft talk. That just puts the whole thing over the top.

That's my $.02, from a medical/Pagan/factual standpoint.
