As this year is the year of the Monkey, monkeys have become the most popular animal in the zoo.
By coincidence, a lovely hamadryas baboon was born in the year of the Monkey. Now it is known as the Monkey King in the zoo.
The hamadryas baboon is the northernmost species among all the baboons. It is a sacred animal to the ancient Egyptians and it’s figure can be found in ancient Egyptian religion.
