Ethiopia: Simien Mountains NP – Gelada Baboons Upclose & Personal

You can get super close to Gelada baboon! They seem totally oblivious to your presence – you can sit and watch them come really close to within feet of you and just sit and socialize and groom each other. Grooming interactions are part of complex events of the gelada’s social structure and interactions – females selecting the breeding males, why males “interviewing” for the job.
