Springtime: Chacma baboons amongst the daisies

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?
