Postcard: Baboon Cuteness

Baboon Baby and Daddy in Amboseli, Kenya

It’s uncanny how baboons, most monkeys for that matter, remind me of humans. Their carriage, their mannerisms, their curiosity. Case in point, this adorable little baby just couldn’t keep his eyes off us. His mother tried to get his attention by turning his chin in her direction but he just wouldn’t have it. He’d push her hand away and go back to gazing at us with those big brown eyes. He HAD to watch us.

Then daddy came over anxious to see what his son was obsessing over. Moments later it was clear that the apple hadn’t fallen far from the tree, daddy fixated on use too! There they were two peas in a pod gaping at us.

Simply adorable.
