Frankfurt Zoo's Baboon Baby
January 14, 2009
This funny faced fellow is new to the Frankfurt Zoo, and it looks like his elders are doing a fine job of welcoming him to the pack. Thanks to Marek Polster for the fine photos!
The Hamadryas Baboon is patriarchal, unlike the other baboon species. Females do most of the parenting. Like other baboons, the Hamadryas Baboon breeds aseasonally.
