Anubis Baboon (Papio anubis)

Also known as Olive baboon, this heavily built and mainly terrestrial baboon can be distinguished from any other Ugandan monkey by its larger size and distinctive dog-like head. It lives in large troops with a complex and rigid social structure held together by matriarchal lineages. Males frequently move between troops in their search for social dominance. Omnivorous and highly adaptable, the Anubis is widespread and common in Uganda, where it is frequently seen on the fringes of forest reserves and even along the roadside.
