[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Baboons: Hamadryas baboons occupy Somalia, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia and
Yemen. Unlike many animals whose numbers have followed an inverse relationship to the rise of human population, baboons have adapted to the presence of man, and their numbers have increased locally, as a result of increased food supply. Thus, the baboons that one sees on the mountain roads of south-western Saudi Arabia are no longer afraid of people but they are still part of a wild population. Unlike their African cousins, the Arabian hamadryas female baboons pair for life, remaining faithful to a single male. Hamadryas baboons can live for over 35 years.
