Baboons in the Park

Baboons are fascinating creatures. 

They are curious too. If you leave your car doors or windows open they will get inside and take things just as the monkeys do.

In fact, baboons are Old World Monkeys.


These photos were taken at Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya. I took many photos but at the moment I can only find a few to share.


  
I especially enjoy watching the baby baboons. Understandably the baby baboon likes to stick close by mama baboon.  Most often you will see the baby being carried around on the mama's back or belly.


 This particular baby seemed to be having lots of fun by himself on the picnic table with his mama close at hand.


I hope you enjoyed these photos.
I'm linking up with our host Eileen at Saturday's Critters.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers reading this.
You deserve a big hug. xx

  10. Cracking animals - I wonder how smart they would be if we could give them IQ (or similar) tests.

  12. Awesome--- I've always been curious about these creatures. Their actions are sometimes so "human" like. I think they are amazing... It must have been so great to see them in the wild as you have done:)
