Baboons?

 

One of the animals on the wall of Cardiff Castle's grounds. The Marquis of Bute was very fond of animals and the castle is decorated inside and out with hundreds of animal carvings and paintings.

 

This wall has a number of stone animals carved as if climbing over the wall into Cardiff town centre. They're slightly spooky at night, and I could see them lurking at night from my hotel window. They are rather neat though.
