Black Baboon

Black Baboon (Cynocephalus niger), a small aberrant form from Celebes and some of the neighbouring islands, where it was probably introduced by man. The general form of the skull agrees best with that of the mandrill, while the position of the nostrils brings it nearer to the macaques. It is frequently seen in captivity, but nothing is known of its habits in a wild state.
