Baboon gang

This is a family of baboons. I met the group at earlier morning; they were looking for food near to our lodge in the Awash National Park/Ethiopia. The leader was trying to scare me (with success) while the others are unimpressed.

Some climbing trees and act as a lookout to detect predators.

  5. These are fabulous, Christian! I have no opportunity to see baboons here in Colorado except in a zoo. How lucky you are. I would have been scared by that first baboon screeching at me too! I'm delighted that you joined in Walk and Click Wednesday! Do come again. ;->

  6. Wonderful shots! And yes I can see that being a little scary. Visiting from Walk and Click Wednesday.
