Baboons in Saudi Arabia


Spend a lot of time looking for and studying wildlife in the natural environment nature will eventually bless you with a sacred, unexpected moment. That is certainly the way I felt when I discovered this troop of Hamadryas Baboons (Papio hamadryas) outside of Riyadh. These guys live in the canyons and crevices of a line of cliffs that overlook a group of date farms. The troop is therefore not unfamiliar with humans and I was able to spend some quality time with them and snap photos. As long as I obeyed the rules of baboon etiquette and kept my distance our visit was very amicable.
