Hamadryas Baboon

At A Glance

  • Conservation Status: Stable
  • Location: Africa Rocks
  • Watch Baboon Cam
  • ZOO ZONE: Africa Rocks

    When Africa Rocks’ large, boisterous group of more than 20 hamadryas baboons charges into their expansive naturalistic 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.
