These two almost look like twins but they each have their own mommy. Sorry I cut off the momís heads but I wanted to get closer to the babes so I zoomed in and concentrated more on the little ones this time around than on the adults. This is what makes me go back and back to the park. Its moments like these that I honestly wish I could just live in the bush.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Females typically give birth, usually to a single infant, after a six-month gestation. The young baboon weighs approximately 400 g and has a black epidermis when born. The females tend to be the primary caretaker of the young, although several females will share the duties for all of their offspring.
After about one year, the young animals are weaned. They reach sexual maturity in five to eight years. Baboon males leave their birth group, usually before they reach sexual maturity, whereas females are philopatric and stay in the same group their whole lives.

Hello Natley,
Indeed, they look like twins. The same funny faces with the big ears. Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Good choice of composition.
Enjoy the weekend,

Hello Natley,
This is very cute and beautiful. And very unusual, for which you are congratulated. I suggest some further slight cropping off at the top but it is neither here nor there. Well done.
