I have neither seen nor heard the type of baboon whose pictures are shown above. I took these pictures in Benishangul region, about 25 Kms from the town of Assosa, just before Ambessa Chaka, on the way from Addis Ababa to Assosa. I know the three type of baboons in Ethiopia, Anubis, Hamadrus and Galada. If any one of you have any idea about those on the above pictures, I really appreciate if you can share your experience with us. It was just recently, Prof. Thulin introduced a new acacia tree species to the world of science from the eastern side of Ethiopia.
