The chacma baboon (or Cape Baboon) is found all over Southern Africa, and it is a social animal with a hierarchy. They do collective foraging, females adopt the young of other females and they form friendship pairings.
Their interaction with humans disrupts their social structure and if they are fed (they are omnivorous) they will become nuisances and even dangerous to humans (particularly to human young or if they are trapped) and they will then have to be shot. Please do not feed the baboons.
