A Congress of Baboons?
What does this baboon meme that we've all seen on Facebook tell us? Well, for starters it tells us that the creator doesn't actually know what a group of baboons is called. We decided we should find out for ourselves...
According to Animal Planet, "Baboons live in groups, called troops, of 30 to 100 individuals..."
National Geographic says, baboons "form large troops, composed of dozens or even hundreds of baboons, governed by a complex hierarchy that fascinates scientists."
Congress does spend a lot of time acting like animals, but we think baboons are pretty cool.
Baboons are pretty smart, sophisticated, and actually less dangerous than chimpanzees (and definitely less so than that other famous primate: humans).
