Baboon

Description:

Out of around 10 shots I took of this comical duo, 9 of them were ones where they suddenly turned around to reveal their red rosy primate cheeks (they are jokester baboons after all!). Suddenly, they felt a change-of-heart and decided to spare me one decent picture where they seem to ponder the mysteries of life (or when I'll drop my guard so they can continue their pranks!).

Habitat:

Found in the Reid Park Zoo where they are held in captivity.
