At a book sale the other day I picked up a small but interesting book on
baboons, Baboons, survivors of the African continent, by Louise Barrett. It
contains this astonishing statement: “During a study of the chacma baboons
of the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa, primatologist Andrew Whitten
once calculated that a group of five baboons had consumed more than 30,000
Morea (sic) flowers in the space of only two-and-a-half hours.”
