The packaging being litter, may have been removed by someone?! So not to harm any of the animals...Cleaning up the flour stuff, would just be time consuming!

All speculations though :D

In winter time it can be very cold in KrugerPark and when you see Baboons early in the morning, they look so sad and miserable by the cold. In this video, you see some very sad baboons sitting close to each other to keep them self warm. :wink:
