Example text

The dense fur is up to 2·5 cm (1") long, and there are long, scattered guard hairs across the body. Subspecies in Tanzania P. c. matschiei: only subspecies found in Tanzania. Similar species The Bush Hyrax (page 34) has a white, rather than yellow, belly and more pronounced white markings above the eyes than adult Rock Hyrax. The Bush Hyrax also has a more slender build and a sharper, more pointed snout. The two species are commonly found on the same kopjes in the Serengeti. The tree hyraxes (page 36) are mainly arboreal in areas of overlap and have white running from the lips to the cheeks (see comparative photographs, page 264).

The skin in the perianal area is usually black, although this turns pink and swells significantly in sexually receptive females. Similar species The Angola Black-and-white Colobus (page 42) has long white hairs on the shoulder, bushy white cheeks and white on the tail and body. The Mitis Monkey (page 68) is smaller and the Red-tailed Monkey (page 66) has a distinctive red tail and a white nose. Ecology and social behaviour In Tanzania the Uganda Grey-cheeked Mangabey is only found in a patch of forest that is contiguous with the Guinea–Congo lowland forests of central Africa.

Home ranges of different troops overlap greatly, though troops typically avoid one another. Yellow Baboons are omnivorous and have a broad diet that includes grasses, seeds, roots, invertebrates, birds and small mammals, including young dik-diks (page 208) and Impalas (page 230). Distribution in Tanzania Yellow Baboons are found across southern, central, eastern and much of western Tanzania. On the northern boundary, their HB: Tail: Wt: M 62–85 cm (24–33") F 51–69 cm (20–27") 45–66 cm (18–26") M 20–28 kg (44–62 lb) | F 9–17 kg (20–37 lb) ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Hydridization zone with Olive Baboon ■ ■ ■ Where to look The Yellow Baboon can be seen in many of the National Parks on the southern circuit, including Mikumi, Ruaha and Sadaani NPs .
