[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A hamadrias baboon, Papio sphinx the absolute alpha male in vulgar display of power, as intimidating as it gets. Not someone you would like to meet alone in the highlands of Ethiopia, but he usually has at least a dozen of squires serving him, almost as bad as him. Anyway you get the picture, mainly this was meant to share with you the powerful impression of possible brute lethality disponible in these animals. Females are a lot smaler and nowhere near as threatening.

Hehe, Radu, love your title :-) It remainds me old-good times with Beavies&Butt-head on MTV. Great photo, very aggresive behaviour. Need dentist for sure.

You won't catch me trying to spank this brute.
Certainly does look fearsome.
Great clarity and colour as usual.
Another National Geographic shot for sure.
