Alert

Baboon Mountain has been at Paignton Zoo since I was a little girl, it's starting to look very tatty and out dated now, though the Baboons seem to be content.

The adults were all relaxing in the sunshine until a couple of youngsters started fighting, then both the silver males leapt up to see who was duffing up who, and should they interfer - neither did, after having a good look they both went back to their naps! Smile

That zoo should be giving you a commission, Karen.
Perfect focus on a powerful creature.

Is that just lichen in the background? It looks almost like a purposeful decoration.

Yes, it is a yellow lichen, the colour of the walls are supposed to be a pinky/red colour (which is natural along the south Devon coast). Smile
