Baboons get smaller!!

Hi, no I haven't got any smaller but look at this!!

This is not all of the baboons at Baboon HQ but you may recognise some of these chaps, at the back from right to left we have me, Edward, Marley, Hoppo and Jack!!  You may not know Jack yet, he is a newer arrival, he was going to live in California but things went a bit wrong and he will live at Baboon HQ with us.  Anyway, all of us big  baboons are 22 inches (Hoppo might be a little more but we don't talk about that)!!

Then we have a row of smaller baboons.  Back in 2011 I was suprised when Roko (in front of me) turned up at Baboon HQ and was like me but only 14 inches.  Soon after that Denis and Austin rocked up around Christmas time and later Thierry joined us.  Just last autumn Chesney joined us look at him, what a handsome chap and lighter than the rest of us.  Well around two years ago we found Mini-Kolo (third row forward to the left) he is 11 inches and just what I needed to travel for me.  Lukaz turned up soon after that and I have also rehomed three baboons like them.  Aboooo at the end of that row is taller but very skinny.

But what I wanted to show you was the little chap in the front (in front of Lukaz), Tony.  I found him on eBay last week, he is only 8 inches.  So baboons like me are definitely getting smaller every year aren't they!! 

How much smaller will they get I wonder!!
