In addition to baboons, we also have vervet monkeys and blue monkeys. The vervets are the most mischievous, visiting camp several times a day in hope that we left a tomato or two out. The blue monkeys are more elusive. During the dry season we may not see them for weeks at a time. Fortunately, during the rainy season they stick around. Baboons and vervets don’t get along so well. I assumed that blue monkeys and baboons just tolerated each other. Instead we are finding them sleeping not just in the same sleeping roves but in the same trees. The other day David and I had the opportunity to watch them feed and forage while we waited for the lazy baboons to wake up. They are curious and very beautiful. They would be a great species to study here at Kasanka. Any takers?
