Chacma Baboon – Photograph

Updated Wednesday, 9 January 2019

As a follow up to Dave Rattle’s article on the Baboons “Bum’s The Word” which we published here recently, I thought I would share this great photograph of a baboon – He is a Chacma Baboon.

Chacma Baboons are the largest of the baboons – they have dark yellowish-grey to dark brown and almost black fur. Their faces are black with white hair below the eyes and on the muzzle.
