Yesterday’s scenes of playful baboons rolling through the daisies and generally romping about set an upbeat mood for the day. The veld offers a good choice of food after the winter rain and the troop looks healthy with a number of new babies. The animals still have their thick winter ‘coats’ which as it warms up, will gradually be shed. In the second photograph is a most impressive sight – a female baboon with a set of bulging cheek pouches – you can see how her jawline pops. What has she been storing, one wonders?
