Baboons at Activity Village

Did you know?

Baboons are a large type of monkey known for being rowdy, intelligent and sometimes quite funny! They are one of the biggest monkeys in the world, with strong jaws and sharp teeth, and live in Africa and Arabia. Unlike many monkeys, Baboons can't use their tail to help them climb trees.

Fun Fact: Baboons use 30 different sounds to communicate with each other, including grunts, screams and barks.
