    Is that diddling? (So, it's not only a male-male behavior?)

    It is definetly #diddling, and I am trying to find if females do it and i am not coming up with much. Also, are we sure that's a female?

    unlike in chimps, male baboons will carry young as far as i know.

    The baboon carrying the baby has quite some nipples ... My guess would be female.

    you're right! so confirmed on female, I will let you know what my colleagues say 😃

    It seems a casual/social behavior, not as prominent as in bonobos, but along those lines.

    female guinea baboon in early lactation greeting (genital manipulation) an adult male (likely her primary social partner).

  • asgoffe by asgoffe scientist

    genital manipulation or #diddling in guinea baboons occurs between individuals of all age and sex classes (m-m, m-f, f-f).

    Hi @asgoffe, welcome to Chimp&See & thanks for answering our questions! do you by any chance have a reference for the MF diddling behaviour?

    i have a paper in review at the moment on intersexual social relationships in this species, but it doesn't specifically focus on greeting.
