One of our rehabilitation volunteers named Ute has mastered the baboon language. Eavie; who was initially rescued by @diywildsouthafrica after her mother tragically died stuck in a cruel snare, made her way to us at CARE. She simply adores playtime with aunty Ute. You can hear Eavie giggle so clearly while she plays. It's the most incredible thing watching these little souls gain confidence, strength and happiness after suffering such loss and trauma at the hands of man. Humans took these little ones mothers away and destroyed everything they held dear at such a young age, and it's up to us to make it right, to rehabilitate and get these bubbas back to where they always belonged, the wild.

Tankara, who is Hamadryas Baboon Tinka’s mother, got the chance to hold her baby granddaughter today! 😊 Tinka and Tankara came to San Diego from @nczoo last year pursuant to an SSP breeding recommendation. These two ladies have integrated well into the San Diego group since then. Tinka is with male Tabuk and just had her first baby. Tankara is paired with male Arnold, and hopefully will have a baby of her own soon! πŸ˜‰ #hamadryasbaboon #monkeyfamily #baboonfamily #meetthebaboons #babybaboon #northcarolinazoo #nczoo #sandiegozoo #sdzooafricarocks

#lettieupdate Here she is with one of her caretakers getting a bottle of milk. She is also eating a bit of fruit and is most of the time with Angel - a baboon who is a little bit bigger so that she can slowly adapt to being with other baboons. #baby #baboon #care #wildlifevideos #bottlefeeding #babybaboon #lovebaboons #feeding #conservationphotography #sundaymorning #sleepy #wildlifeplanet #snap_wildlife #animals_captures #wildlife_perfection #wildgeography #global4nature #animal_in_world #naturee

When baboons are babies they hang under moms tummy upside down, but as soon as they are bigger they move up. The bigger they are the more confident they get. I always thought it is something very human about this β€œpiggyback β€œ ride, once again we are so alike... I love how chill his attitude is.

Olive baboons are the most widespread species of baboons. They live in large groups up to 150 members strong. Their canines can be larger than that of lions. Olive baboons and humans share 91% similar DNA. . . #olivebaboons #babybaboon #baboons #monkeys #beautifulwildlife #wildlife #manyaranationalpark #lakemanyaranationalpark #lakemanyara #safari #africa #tanzania #northerncircuit #tazamaafrica #wildlifeoftanzania #laurainthesquare #gwunne

Just like in Gymnastics, a good "dismount" is very important! Oh well, I guess Mom will sort it out later! #sandiegozoo #zoo #cutebabyanimals #babybaboon #babyanimals #baboon #hamadryasbaboon #babyhamadryasbaboon #gijit

Doodle and his brother Fox have just cleared their final quarantine exam! In the coming days they will be relocated to our Main Primate enclosures where they will begin the next phase of their journey to being release back into the wild. Their next phase in the rehabilitation process involves being integrated into one of our existing baboon troops. This involves slowly introducing Doodle and Fox to specific troop members in a controlled environment so they can form bonds with their new family members. It's also so they learn more social behaviors such as the baboon hierarchy structure, this will help them to fit in with this troop. In the wild, baboons are born into their ranks and having actual mothers and siblings helps develop this social behaviour and understanding, however what we deal with, are the baboons that are without mothers or troops. They will all come in with different histories, past traumas, and at different ages - we have to try and form a well-functioning troop with no actual blood-lines, in addition to a foreign nurturing environment. This process can take many months but its vital that it's done correctly so that this troop with thrive upon release time. If bonds aren't properly formed, or if there is a continuous level of stress, we risk our baboons absconding from the troop at release time - which highly impacts their survivability in wild. Fortunately for these two, their foster-mother (Kezi), is actually the most dominant female from her troop. So once these guys are integrated, they have the potential of growing into a high rank due to their foster-mothers rank. There's little research done on the effects of a foster-mothers rank to their orphans however from our experience @lilongwewildlife there is a reason to believe the link exists. Note: when I say from our experience - I mean from the rehab-queen's experience - @almavandorenmalen . . πŸ“Έ: @mell

Here is another baby baboon being groomed by it’s mother. Preening or social grooming is one of the most important forms of socializing for these animals. It is a way of forming bonds, as well as keeping each other clean. Grooming strengthens the bond between allies that can help when there are disputes over food or in dominance fights. Grooming generally strengthens the overall cohesion of the group and reinforces hierarchies. I love witnessing the family bond in nature, you can find so many similarities between the human and animal worlds if you take the time to look! Check out my story for more videos!

Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ A young chacma baboon - also known as Cape baboon - is having a rest in Kruger National Park. Baboons can be found almost all over Africa. They commonly live in hierarchical groups, called troops. Females give birth to a single infant after a six-month gestation. [End of wildlife month.

While conducting research in Kruger National Park it’s common to have interested spectators on your commute. The Baboons are a particular highlight showing an intense curiosity and playful nature.....with the adults dishing out the discipline as required πŸ˜€ #baboon #krugernationalpark #kruger #southafrica #africa #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #apes #5dmarkiii #canonphotography #fieldwork #baby #babybaboon

This is the Guinea Baboon! They are the smallest of the baboon species and are native to a small region of equatorial Africa in dry woodlands, forests, savannas, and grasslands. As shown here, these primates are highly communicative through methods that include touch, calls, facial expressions, and postures. They are threatened by habitat loss in their limited range.

Very interesting sighting yesterday. We witnessed this baboon have a miscarriage. The baby as you can see was not yet fully developed. It was amazing to see how she would carry the lifeless body everywhere with her, attacking anyone who came to close to the body. It’s was fascinating to see this display of emotion from this beautiful mother. #newborn #circleoflife #natural #wild #lifeinthewild #baboon #baby #babybaboon #body #animals #wildanimals #birth #babyanimals #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #africa #africanature #africanwildlife #naturephotography #experience #beautifuldestinations #southafrica #amazed

Learning to crawl takes a lot of concentration... I’ve been told that this little cutie has a name now! Tinka’s baby girl is called β€œGijet” which is also the name of a city in Ethiopia. #babybaboon #hamadryasbaboon #learningtocrawl #babysteps #babymonkey #cutebabymonkey #zooborns #meetthebaboons #sdzooafricarocks #sandiegozoo

Juvenile male Hamadryas Baboon Zito absolutely adores Tinka’s new baby girl, and the feeling seems to be mutual. Tinka and Zito came together from North Carolina Zoo, and she is very tolerant of him being around the baby. He is the first Baboon besides Tinka who I observed getting the chance to hold the baby. #baboonfamily #babybaboon #hamadryasbaboons #meetthebaboons #monkeyfamily #animalfamilyportrait #sdzooafricarocks #sandiegozoo

A silly young baboon in Kenya spotted us and started putting on a show. He jumped around, got up on the tree and turned upside down to look at us at a funny angle. #baboon #babyanimals #babybaboon #wildlife #wildlifephotography #kenya #safari #africa #canon #canonphotography #natgeoyourshot
