I’ve posted several photos of native baboons recently – I hoped you’re not getting bored with them! I got so many great shots on our trip to Taif, where baboons live in the mountains. The females, like many animal species, are not as flamboyant looking as the males (see the one I posted yesterday). They appear to be very caring mothers. The Hamadryas Baboon is native to the area around the Red Sea, including Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. To the Egyptians, this baboon was sacred, hence it is called the Sacred Baboon. They eat fruits and grasses, as well as insects and small animals.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
