  1. Absolutely hilarious, Claire. If not for the monkeys, it is for the horse who doesn't seem to care. Promoted, obviously :) Posted 6 years ago

  4. The horse is saying "hurry up, will you!"
    Claire...please take a look at this picture if you don't mind. I have classified it as an Acacia which I believe it is, but I can't be sure what species it is. The picture was taken near Blyde River Canyon - God's Window.

      1. Problem is "which" Acacia. I cannot find any reference to acacias up that high on the escarpment. I appreciate any help. Thanks again Posted 6 years ago

The chacma baboon , also known as the Cape baboon, is, like all other baboons, from the Old World monkey family. It is one of the largest of all monkeys.

Located primarily in southern Africa, the chacma baboon has a wide variety of social behaviors, including a dominance hierarchy, collective foraging, adoption of young by females, and friendship pairings. These behaviors form parts of a complex evolutionary ecology.
