An endearing family portrait of a Hamadryas baboon mother with young. This species is also knowns as the 'sacred baboon' as it played a role in ancient Egyptian religion. However, the photographer notes, "The Hamadryas Baboon has been exterminated from Egypt, and is much reduced in other areas of the world. It is found mainly in Ethiopia and Somalia, Saudi Arabia and Yemen."
