what makes ethiopia gelada monkeys so unique



  1. 0 Votes

    Although the gelada monkey is closely related to baboons, they live in a vastly different type of habitat, so are unique in a few ways. Furthermore they come from remote grasslands so they’ve developed independently. Gelada monkeys inhabit the high grasslands of Ethiopia, a habitat that is somewhat threatened by encroaching farming, and likewise their numbers are limited. Their behavior as terrestrial grazers is closer to humans than other primates. The primates spend much of their life sitting on their fatty rear end, chewing grass. Sounds like humans to me, especially Americans. 🙂
