Take Me Seriously

The Kruger National Park is the home of the dog-faced or chacma baboon.  They live in groups, known as troops, and they do not live in trees. Baboons have a very complicated social system which is really just based on becoming and staying dominant.  They can live to be 45 years old, but like the lion, the baboon is also endangered.
