"Wild Cousins of the Savanna"

Papio anubis


Anubis Baboon / Anubis Pavian


They are also Primates ... ok not direct closely related to to us but ... our history of development separated long time ago ... but we all are Catarrhini - Old World Monkeys. The name of the species comes from the Egyptian god Anubis who was often represented with a dog head resembling the dog like muzzle of this monkey.

Enjoy the following pictures of different groups in different areas in Tanzania...

Sie gehören zu den Primaten, sind zwar nicht direkt mit uns verwand, unsere Entwichlungsgeschichte trennte sich schon vor sehr langer Zeit ... aber wir alle gehören zu den Altweltaffen. Benannt ist diese Spezies nach dem ägyptischen Gott Anubis, der oft mit einem Hundekopf dargestellt wird und so der hundeähnlichen Schnauze dieser Art ähnlich sieht.

Genießt die folgenden Bilder verschiedener Gruppen in verschiedenen Gegenden Tansanias...
