  • Indeed, species with such swellings have twice as many males per group than those without. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent field studies of baboons suggest that male-infant relationships are mediated through affiliations between the males and the infants' mothers, but the degree to which these male-female affiliations are based on prior mating experience (hence, paternity) has not been established.
