Baby baboons and more. The North Carolina Zoo has a number of juvenile baboons, including three born in the spring of 2014. By scrolling down beneath each photo, you should be able to see my little stories.
Tankara sits in the grass. I have no idea why these animals look right at me as I am taking their pics, but I am so glad they do! The main reason I am posting this here is for identification. I am trying very hard to learn to distinguish among the many females in the troop. Guess what, Tankara looks like this! I would say she has a little bit of a mustache that is not so evident on some of the other females.
Karamela can't get very far away from her mother Candy, or at least she did not get too far when I was there to photograph her on July 23. And now you know WHY. Yes, mother Candy actually restrains that little tyke just about every minute, but holding on to Karamela's tail!
