Baboon eating ...

  • AnLand by AnLand moderator

    Does anybody have an idea what the baboon is eating here. It looks like a small animal, but I am not even sure if they would eat meat.

    ACP000asld and ACP000aslf shows it mixing it with the figs. Not sure what it is though. But yes, they would eat meat too.

    Looks like some sort of meat to me too - i think it would be cool to add a tag like #meat_eating

    I hope to see that in chimps as well! (Not very likely, but maybe we get lucky.)

    definitely a baboon eating meat--what a great find! but this is just a portion of a carcass and the angle does not allow for me to make a clear ID on the species, but they may eat a variety of animals (e.g. rodents, hare and antelopes, as well as birds).
