The Olive Baboons are located in the African Savanna Section of the Toronto Zoo.

 

 

The Olive Baboon [Papio anubis] is also known as the “Anubis” baboon and is one of the largest species of monkey.  It is native throughout Africa .  The name is derived from the “olive-like” colour of its coat which is a green-gray.

The hair on the Baboon’s face is coarse and varies from dark gray to black.  Notice that the Baboon has an elongated muzzle much like a dog?  This is where the secondary name “Anubis” comes from.  It is named after the Egyptian god Anubis who was represented by a dog’s head.

Did you know... 

that Olive Baboon’s live in groups of 15-150 known as “troops”?  Each monkey has a social ranking within the group dependent upon how dominant it is.  While female baboons inherit their social ranking, males have to fight for them.  A female will rank the same as their mother.  Males will fight and challenge each other for dominance.  Baboons are active during the day and spend their time looking for food, playing, grooming, fighting with others and nursing their young.

Baboons are larger and more aggressive than most monkeys.  Although adult males have large 5 cm teeth and powerful jaws, it takes a troop to survive in the Savanna.  Much time is spent building and reinforcing relationships by mutual grooming.

Olive Baboons have a "quadrupedal" stance which means that they walk on all four of their limbs.  This gives them even more of a dog-like appearance.  Don't be alarmed, the baboon's tail is not broken!  Their long tails can reach almost 2 feet in length.  They typically hold them away from their body and then they drop suddenly giving the appearance of an injury. 

In the wild, Olive Baboons have a life span of 25 to 30 years.

Olive Baboons are very smart.  I recently heard about people living beside Nairobi National Park where the baboons live in the wild.  The monkeys would sit in trees waiting for vehicles to arrive home.  They watched for the colour of shopping bags the people were carrying to see which stores the people were coming from.  When the bag indicated that the owner had come from a grocery store, they would come to raid the kitchen changing their raid tactics constantly.  One day they would raid the kitchen directly, the next day they set diversions by going into other rooms while others raided the kitchen.

Baboons have very human-like nimble hands.  Notice the nails and fingerprints.

In the image above, we can clearly see the long, pointed muzzles that differs greatly from the flat faces characteristic of other primates.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  That's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
