The yellow baboon (Papio cynocephalus) has yellowish-brown hair which gives it its name. The face protrudes similar to a dog's muzzle, and the species epithet literally means "dog-head" in Greek. Yellow baboons inhabit savannas and light forests in eastern Africa, from Kenya and Tanzania to Zimbabwe and Botswana. Baboons have complex social structures with anywhere from 8 to 200 individuals per troop. They use at least 10 different vocalizations to communicate. With canines up to two inches long, adult males will take on just about any small predators. A lone male is able to intimidate and chase away an animal as large as a jackal.
