Chacma baboon

Marty’s photo of the day #3283: This is a chacma baboon, photographed in Zimbabwe. When full-grown, males weigh seventy or more pounds, and females weigh half that. Experts are divided as to whether chacmas are a subspecies of the savannah baboon or a species unto themselves. Either way, they’re the world’s largest baboons.
