Monkey Skull (Chacma Baboon - female) Cast Replica - Papio ursinus #BC-259

-Size: 7”L x 4”W x 4&1/2”H

-Species: Papio ursinus

-Notes: The chacma baboon is found on the savannahs of southern Africa. A distinctive feature of this baboon is its dog-like muzzle, which motivates one of its common names, the dog-faced monkey. The female ranges from 16-24 inches, weighs about 35 pounds and lives for a maximum of 45 years. Troops of 40-50 members consist of adult males and females and their offspring. It's currently thought that the female has a large say in whom she mates with, often choosing multiple partners to ensure greater participation by the males in the nurturing and safe-keeping of the offspring, which may be their own. The female baboon appears to pass her social ranking on to her offspring. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
