“There are five different species of baboons. [Four of the five live in African savannas.] Baboons are some of the world’s largest monkeys, and males of different species average from 33 to 82 pounds… Like other Old World monkeys, baboons do not have prehensile (gripping) tails. But they can and do climb trees to sleep, eat, or look out for trouble. They spend much of their time on the ground.” (NatGeo).
