Yellow Baboon (Papio cynocephalus), female, Ambolesi National Park, Kenya

Year: 2013
From collection: African Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The yellow baboon inhabits savannas and light forests in the eastern Africa, from Kenya and Tanzania to Zimbabwe and Botswana. It is diurnal, terrestrial, and lives in complex, mixed-gender social groups of eight to 200 individuals per troop. It is omnivorous with a preference for fruits, but it also eats other plant parts, as well as insects. Baboons are highly opportunistic eaters and will eat almost any food they come across.
