The picture is that of a Chacma Baboon (Papio ursinus) They reach a
shoulder heigth of 80 cm and weighs between 30 kg (male) and 18 kg
(females) These large powerfully built primates have a prominent,
dog-like muzzle, and a strong jaw with canines whicj exceed those of a
lions in length. females normally give birth to a single young after 6-7
months of gestation. Their enemies are leopard & man. Monkeys are
smaller primates than the baboon family. Just thought you would like to

The Chacma Baboon (Papio ursinus), also known as the Cape Baboon, is, like all other baboons, from the Old World monkey family. With a body length of up to 115 cm and a weight from 15 to 31 kg, it is among the largest and heaviest baboon species. The Chacma is generally dark brown to gray in color, with a patch of rough hair on the nape of its neck. Unlike the northern baboon species (the Guinea, Hamadryas, and Olive Baboons), Chacma males do not have a mane. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of this baboon is its long, downwardly-pointed face. Males can have canine teeth as long as 2 inches (longer than a lion's canine teeth). Baboons are sexually dimorphic, males being considerably larger than females.
