This is a short look at just three of the many primate species that live in Africa. Baboons (along with Mandrills) are the largest members of the monkey family. The Olive Baboon featured here, has a large range spread across central Africa. New reports show they at times will cross breed with other baboon species. Also on this video are curious Vervet Monkeys, and the animal most closely related to us, the Chimpanzee.
PLEASE REMEMBER- PRIMATES ARE NOT PETS!
