Artist's Description

The Olive Baboon (papio anubis) is not just a monkey. This dominant male commands a large troop (from a few to as many as 150, with 35 the average) who feed primarily on vegitation, insects, and small rodents. They are opportunistic and will also catch, kill and eat newborn antelope.

With 5 inch long canine teeth and a nasty attitude, baboons are highly respected among their fellow denizens of the wild. Leopard females are often set upon by baboon males who attack the big cats with impunity. Since the baboons often outweigh the leopard females, the cats run for their lives.
