Hungarian Hamardyas Baboons

2015.05.07 14:44

The Hamadryas Baboon (Papio hamadryas) is a species of baboon from the Old World Monkey family. It is the northernmost of all the baboons, being native to the Horn of Africa and the southwestern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. These regions provide habitats with the advantage for this species of fewer natural predators than central or southern Africa where other baboons reside. The hamadryas baboon was a sacred animal to the Ancient Egyptians, therefore their alternative name is 'Sacred Baboon' (in Saudi-Arabia nowadays too).

Now I show you the individuals or group from the Hungarian Zoos.
