DESCRIPTION OF THE SPECIES
A large monkey with the body length of up to 1m (old males) including 20-25cm of tail; the females are half the size. The total colour of hair covering the baboon’s body is gray (the colour of dry grass); the original position of long hair on the head, shoulders and chest form something like a mane. The ischial callosities are red; the naked skin of the face is dark flesh-coloured. The females are darker than the males, and their hair is shorter; the young look like the females. They are very aggressive primates. The group of baboon males is able to oppose a leopard. Thanks to their strength, strong teeth, courage and solidarity, the group of old males may be very dangerous even for people without weapons.
They eat plant roots and small animals (snails, worms and insects). They hunt small mammals up to young antelopes.
