Are Monkeys Cuter Than Baboons?

It was inevitable. The Olive Baboons and the Vervet Monkeys in the Serengeti National Park finally got there own post. Both of these primates have so many different sides to their personality and looks. First, let’s look at the Vervet Monkeys which I think most people would agree are cute.

Next, let us look at the much larger Olive Baboons which I think most people would agree are not so cute. Especially with that butt, although admittedly, it is colourful.

So then, I guess a Vervet Monkey mother with her small infant becomes even cuter.

But does an Olive Baboon mother carrying a small infant become more cute? I don’t know but I would argue that a baboon infant is cute even when it’s a baboon.

Vervet Monkeys are just at home in the trees or on the ground. They are never far from a tree and if a predator shows up then up the tree they go.

Olive Baboons tend to spend a lot of time on the ground walking from spot to spot. We found them in the trees when they were feeding. I assume they sleep in trees at night.

So in conclusion, we think monkeys are cuter than baboons so they get an extra picture!
