There are five species ( Corbet 1978; Dandelot, in Meester and Setzer Yalden, Largen, and Kock
  • P. hamadryas (hamadryas baboon), upper Egypt, northeastern Sudan, eastern Ethiopia, northern Somalia, southwestern Arabian Peninsula;
  • P. anubis (olive baboon), savannah zone from Mali to Ethiopia and northern Tanzania, also several mountainous areas in the Sahara Desert;
  • P. papio (western baboon), Senegal, Gambia, Guinea;
  • P. cynocephalus (yellow baboon), Angola, southern Zaire, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, northern Mozambique, Kenya, Somalia;
  • P. ursinus (chacma baboon), southern Africa.
The authority for the name Papio Mandrillus (see account thereof) sometimes is regarded as a subgenus of Papio. The ranges of the species P. anubis, P. papio, P. cynocephalus, and P. ursinus are largely, if not entirely, allopatric, and it may be that all of these species intergrade and are no more than subspecies of a single widespread species ( De Vore and Hall Maples Thorington and Groves 1970). Such an arrangement was accepted by Honacki, Kinman, and Koeppl

Baboon information Baboons are amoungst the largest of primates. All species of Baboon have cheek pouches which enable them to grab food quickly and run with it, without the need to stop and chew. Baboons have large canine teeth and long snouts. Baboons' ears and faces have no fur. Their arms and legs (forelimbs and hindlimbs) are approximately equal in length, giving baboons their amusing "stoop" in movement. Baboons have tails which vary in length, but are generally long. Baboons have thick and course fur the colour of which varies with species and habitat. Baboons range from 50-60 cm in length. Male baboons are up to twice as large as females and often have long hair around the shoulders, which makes them look larger still. Baboons are ground-dwelling creatures and generally group in numbers ranging from 15 to 200 in size. Baboons prefer to live on rocky plains or in hilly regions, although they can also be found in sparse forests. They usually feed during the day, although they have been known to raid farms at night.

Baboons are only found in Africa. They are the best adapted of all monkeys to a terrestrial life, the Hamadryas being the most terrestrial. Baboons live in a wide range of habitats including open habitats. But they require rocky cliffs or tall trees to sleep in at night and access to water. Only a few are forest dwellers, such as the Guinea baboon from West Africa.
Baboons eat a wide variety of food, generally whatever is in abundance. Baboons have relatively long thumbs to dextrously pick and prepare food (e.g., peeling, stripping). They prefer fruit, but when this is not available, will eat less nutritious but abundant food. The Yellow baboon is particularly adapted to seeds with unusual chemistry which other creatures find less palatable. During the dry season, grass can make up 90% of their diet, tearing it up in handfuls. They may also dig up tubers and they can survive on roots and bulbs alone. Their long, dog-like jaws have large molars which efficiently grind up such tough food. They also have cheek pouches to stuff food into. This way, they can quickly gather their food, then slowly process it later in a safer and cooler place. Unfortunately, baboons also raid human crops.

Olive baboons are highly adaptable and sociable primates. Their lifespan is 3040 years. They travel in troops whose size varies
The BUAV has undertaken one of its most dangerous investigations to date, into the international trade in wild caught baboons for research. BUAV investigators travelled to Tanzania to infiltrate the primate supply network. We uncovered evidence of wild baboons being kept in shocking conditions prior to their export to laboratories around the world. Our unique footage has revealed the appalling treatment inflicted on these highly sensitive and sociable animals. Sold for as little as $12 each (£8) by the trappers, these primates are then sold on to the international research industry for up to $1200 per baboon (approximately £800). Tanzania is East Africa's largest country. It has rich and varied ecosystems and is a country of great natural wealth and spectacular beauty. Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, is amongst Tanzania's most popular attractions. It is also well-known for its extensive flora and fauna and is home to more than 4 million wild animals, including many non-human primates, over 60,000 insect species, more than 1000 bird species and a host of plant species. It is thus a popular destination for tourists who are playing an increasingly important role in the Tanzanian economy. Prior to our investigation, little was known as to the exact location of the baboon dealers' trapping sites and holding stations in Tanzania. Thus on arrival in the country, the BUAV investigators had to carry out detective work during which they met with suspicion and on occasions hostility, often finding themselves in potentially dangerous situations. Their perseverance, however, paid off and soon they were able to start unravelling the secret world of the Tanzanian primate dealers.

A Primates Memoir: A Neuroscientists Unconventional Life Among the Baboons > Customer Review #1: A Wonderful Read

Dr. Sapolsky mixes deep personal feelings, intimate recountings of his experiences, and hard science to tell the story of his lifelong work studying the baboons of Kenya. The result is illuminating and entertaining at the same time. As reader, you feel like you are getting the "straight skinny," albeit in a form that is always interesting, and often hilariously funny. There is an apocryphal story going around that Thomas Manns typist for Joseph and His Brothers said as he finished "So thats what really happened!" (Spolsky, by the way, is not a great fan of Mann more smartass hilarity here.) I sort of felt the same way upon finishing this: so thats what really happens with people (Diane Fossey, Laurence of the Hyenas) who go off to Africa to do science. Sapolsky does them all justice. Life is tough, complicated, and rife with compromises, and Sapolsky captures all of this his inimitable style.

Almost Human: A Journey into the World of Baboons > Customer Review #2: An important book of science and meta-science

Strums account of her fieldwork is intensely interesting, as she looked past the "received wisdom" about baboon hierarchies and saw what was really going on. Of course baboons are not identical to humans - but the fundamental impulses of baboon behavior and their strategies for dealing with the their society and the world around them are similar to many things humans do; Strum claims no more than that. Just as fascinating as her discoveries about baboons, however, is her account of the effort to get her field results heard within the closed shop of baboon studies. She ran into a problem that damages almost all the sciences: The experts who get to decide whether the results of your research get published in scientific journals are usually the very same people whose triumphant discoveries of twenty years ago your research is about to supercede or even contradict. Naturally they think your work is nonsense and do all they can to keep it from getting published - because if you are right, and prevail, then their great work is erased. This struggle has been faced by so many scientists that its a wonder we ever advance human learning at all. The only things that get published quickly and easily are the results that confirm our preexisting views. Indeed, one sees quite a bit of baboon behavior among scientists - as among all other humans....

Old World Monkeys
This family of 19 genera and as many as 94 species is found in Africa (and, possibly through introduction, in Gibraltar in extreme southern Spain), the southwestern part of the Arabian Peninsula, south-central and southeastern Asia, Japan, and the East Indies as far as Sulawesi and Timor. The sequence of genera presented here follows largely that of Hershkovitz 1977), who divided the Cercopithecidae into two subfamilies: Cercopithecinae, with the genera Miopithecus, Cercopithecus, Erythrocebus, Allenopithecus, Cercocebus, Macaca, Papio, Mandrillus, and Theropithecus; and Colobinae, with Presbytis, Semnopithecus, Trachypithecus, Pygathrix, Rhinopithecus, Nasalis, Simias, Colobus, Piliocolobus, and Procolobus. Variations of this sequence, but with the same basic subfamilial divisions, were given by Thorington and Groves 1970) and Dandelot ( in Meester and Setzer Hill 1970), however, placed the genera Cercocebus, Macaca, Papio, Mandrillus, and Theropithecus in a separate subfamily, the Cynopithecinae.
Head and body length is 325-1,100 mm. The tail, when present, is 20-1,030 mm long, but it is absent in the Barbary ape

About Our
SNPRC is home to the world's largest baboon colony , presently comprising about 3,700 animals. Most of the baboons at the facility are olive baboons (Papio hamadryas anubis), but there are also some hamadryas baboons (Papio hamadryas hamadryas), red baboons (Papio hamadryas papio) and yellow baboons (Papio hamadryas cynocephalus).
Our main breeding colony is made up of olive baboons, living outdoors in two open-air corrals. Each corral is six acres in size, and contains from 300 to 700 animals.
SNPRC also has a pedigreed baboon colony of about 700 individuals, whose family ancestral lines are well-documented. These baboons live in groups with 15-30 females, their infants, and one male so that the sire is known. Infant baboons are black when they are born, turning the brownish color of the adults when they are about 6 months old. Male and female baboons are very protective of youngsters in their group, and females are especially eager to touch newborn infants. They may follow the mother and groom her to get a chance to touch the infant.
At the other end of the age spectrum is our Pedigreed Geriatric Baboon Colony. This colony contains around 300 animals, all greater than 16 years of age. Of these, over 240 have been genotyped for the 330 microsatellite markers used in our gene mapping studies; eventually, all the animals will be genotyped. These animals are a unique and precious resource for investigating genetic contributions to the physiology of aging, including understanding of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and menopause.

Range and habitat
Baboon, common name applied to certain large African monkeys and sometimes to the closely related gelada. Baboons generally are adapted to life on the ground and avoid forests; they range in large herds, called troops, over rocky, open lands and wooded areas of Africa and Arabia. Powerful and aggressive animals about the size of a large dog, baboons have strong, elongated jaws, large cheek pouches in which they store food, and eyes close together. They have overhanging brows and strong limbs. Baboons can distinguish colors and have a keen sense of smell. They have large, often brightly colored, hairless areas on their buttocks, and thick, sturdy legs. The tail is generally short and is carried high in an arch. Baboons eat various worms, eggs, insects, reptiles, crabs, mollusks, small mammals, fruits, and young shoots. Their troops are often composed of 30 to more than 100 members. Baboons have several different calls, many of which have specific meanings. After a gestation period of about six months, a female usually bears a single offspring, which clings to its mother's underside. Rarely a female will have twins. The largest of the baboons is the chacma of southern Africa. Known also as the pig-tailed baboon, it is grayish-brown with a green tint along the back. The adult male may weigh up to 41 kg (90 lb) and is a formidable fighter against the troop's enemies.
