Gelada Baboons

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wall.”Last summer I spent a couple of days in Simien Mountains National Park, Ethiopia, one of the few places left on earth where these baboons still exist.  In the mist and rain one day, I accidentally walked in the middle of a large group. image

They remained unafraid and basically ignored me.  They are the only remaining grass eating primates.  The rest are all extinct.
