The Chacma baboon (Papio ursinus) is a large monkey with a dog-like face and large, prominent canines. These features give it a more aggressive apperance than other primates. They are extremely common in central Namibia and also live in the remote Erongo Mountains. The baboon is very inquisitive and can easily destroy a camera trap, for example.
