Great sighting vinkie :clap:

The live cam looks to be having a bit of trouble focussing this evening... I think because it's quite windy!

Hi everyone

Just a quick question.

Whilst watching the live cam at Orpen today (I love it!!!) I noticed behaviour I haven't seen before. An adult baboon was walking around holding a very young baboon by the tail, in its mouth. Whenever I've seen young baboons in the wild they have always been clutching onto their mothers. Is the behaviour I witnessed particularly common? Perhaps the young one was just in a bit of trouble :lol:

It just goes to show how much more we can enjoy our beloved parks through a live cam 8)
