Sometimes it is good to watch baboons and see how they behave and also how the big allow the small to practice their mating rituals. The way they fight for the food is also quite a sight.

I remember one of my guests asking me a question about why other baboons have got pink at their back. This, for me, was a very interesting question. The reason you see that pink is if the female is on heat or ready to mate with a male.

Another amazing fact about the baboons is that there will always be one of them sitting up high in a tree keeping a lookout for any danger that may approach.
