Hamadryas Baboon

At A Glance

  • Location: Africa Rocks
  • Conservation Status: Stable
  • When Africa Rocks’ large, boisterous group of more than 20 hamadryas baboons charges into their expansive habitat, all heads turn. In hamadryas baboon society, a larger, dominant male leads a family unit of many females and their young. They can scale sheer cliff faces to reach their favorite craggy ledges—and there is constant activity as they vocalize, groom each other, bound into trees, and chase each other around.
