furr he's a jolly good fellow ...

... this handsome fellow is a male Hamadryas Baboon ... a resident of the Adelaide Zoological Gardens, South Australia ... Baboons have a lifespan in captivity of around 45 years and 30 years in the wild ... their habitat extends from Ethiopia into the extreme south western tip of Saudi Arabia ... there is some risk to their survival due to the loss of habitat through agriculture and the exploitation of the species for food and sport ...
