  • female
  • Specifically, the maximal swelling size increases from cycle to cycle for individual female chimpanzees and baboons. (wikipedia.org)
  • To prevent the killing of their offspring, female baboons employ copulatory calls in order to attract other males, allowing multiple mating acts and creating parental confusion among the males involved. (wikipedia.org)

  • infant
  • One incident of a chacma baboon killing a human infant has been reported, but the event is so rare, the locals believed it was due to witchcraft. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Baboons would have once been found throughout the African continent and today, although they are still widespread, their natural range continues to decrease. (a-z-animals.com)
  • frequency
  • Thus, we recommend the combined strategy of reducing raiding incentives in conjunction with provisioning as a short-term, cost-effective strategy to alter a baboon troop's movement patterns and raiding frequency. (springer.com)
