"Happy Trails to You"
This little one must be older than 6-12 weeks which is when they begin to ride jockey-style on their mothers' backs. Notice the huge male in the background. During a disturbance, an alarm bark draws adult males rushing toward it. Normally, their presence is enough to minimize predation. The most effective baboon predator is the ever stealthy leopard. Lions, spotted hyenas, chimpanzees, pythons, large eagles and humans are also known to have killed baboons.
