What does baboon eat?

The dietary regime of baboons consists mainly of plant-eating, in spite of the size of their canines (they serve them mainly as protection).

They eat also grasshoppers, ants, and sometimes small gazelles and unprotected chickens. The olds monkeys have cheeks - skin pockets which draw tight when full of food.

In order to find food, each day these monkeys walk 10 km in the zone which they inhabit constantly.
