About Me

Scientific Name Papio hamadryas


Hamadryas Baboons are easily recognized by the thick silver-gray manes and red faces of the adult males. Females and juveniles lack such distinction. They possess elongated, rectangular muzzles that conceal large fangs several inches in length. Their posteriors possess large, red padding.
