  1. What are the odds, my dad was telling me today he had seen these monkeys on TVs, and how they amazed them. I had seen a documentary about them before. And here you come with a real spotting. Wonderful! Posted 5 years ago

The gelada , sometimes called the gelada baboon, is a species of Old World monkey found only in the Ethiopian Highlands, with large populations in the Semien Mountains. ''Theropithecus'' is derived from the Greek root words for "beast-ape." Like its close relatives the baboons , it is largely terrestrial, spending much of its time foraging in grasslands.
