The life of a baby baron isn’t always easy... except for travelling, they have a pretty good deal there!
The female chacma baboon does the majority of the child care but males are known to be particularly good parents, especially when compared to the rest of the animal kingdom. Males are highly protective and have been seen to use their ‘babysitting’ skills to further relationships with females and boost their reproductive success.
The female productive cycle is about 36 days, with infants being weaned after six months, but remain dependent on their mothers for protection until about two years of age. #monkeymonday#baboon#baboonsofinstagram#babies#baby#piggyback#africa#alldays#awcrc#research#funfacts#nature#wildlife#monkey
The fourth primate is the Olive baboon. Research on wild, free-ranging olive baboons has been ongoing since 1978 at Masai Mara National Reserve.
They are very selective in seeking sleeping refuges to increase protection from predators. They prefer rocky cliffs to trees as some of the known predators like leopards, have a difficult time scaling rocky walls because they cannot find holdings for their paws as well as baboons can for their hands and feet.
They spend their days foraging close to the zebras and other ungulates to maximise flight response in case a predator is nearby.
Anthropomorphizing is the practice of giving animals human qualities. There is no doubt that all animals are both thinking and feeling creatures but they think and feel the way that best suited the long term success of their individual species. Not everything operates the same as we do but they deserve the respect to operate the way they would naturally.
The Lookout | This baboon assisted the alpha male and family by watching out for predators. Within a minute he had changed his orientation close to 40 times. He could never stay still, but its that action that keeps them safe.
THE CHIEF | One of my favorite animals to photographs are primates. They are clever, funny, sneaky, buggers, intelligent and most interesting. Baboons are no exception and I’m always willing to spend time watching them. On this occasion, we came about a family of baboons lead by a mighty chief alpha male. Helped by a lookout, the chief sent the family on their way as he climbed on top of the canopy to keep watch. I photographed a series of images, but decided on this particular shot as he stood watching me. Don’t worry I wont be doing any monkey business today chief.
