hamadryas baboon (Papio hamadryas)

Hamadryas of Mantel-Baviaan (Cynocephalus hamadryas) Currently: Papio hamadryas
Date 1927
Author A. E. Brehm

The hamadryas baboon (Papio hamadryas) is a species of baboon from the Old World monkey family. It is the northernmost of all the baboons, being native to the Horn of Africa and the southwestern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. These regions provide habitats with the advantage for this species of fewer natural predators than central or southern Africa where other baboons reside. The hamadryas baboon was a sacred animal to the ancient Egyptians and appears in various roles in ancient Egyptian religion, hence its alternative name of 'sacred baboon'.
