So, I understand that not everyone is as obsessed with monkeys, mongoose and wildlife in general as I am. That being said, I took these pictures a couple days ago, and I really wanted to share.
A vervet monkey - a troop of these lives on campus and frequently shows up on the hill behind our office.
There is also a family of banded mongoose that lives behind the office. They're a little tougher to photograph up close than the monkeys since they tend to get scared and run away.
Is there anything inside of there?
This yellow baboon seems to follow the vervet monkey troop around, which is strange for a few reasons. First, normally baboons live in troops of their own, and second, baboons have been known to prey on vervet monkeys. Maybe he's just following his food.
Another shot of the same yellow baboon.
