The baboon, as featured in this jigsaw puzzle, is a part of the Old World Monkeys. This particular group of monkeys has been living in Africa and Asia since early times. They are hierarchal creatures and usually live in groups that range from 5 to 250 members. Baboons can live in any kind of terrain and currently their range encompasses anything from rain forest, savannah, and shrub land. They are omnivorous, but usually stay mostly vegetarian. A baboon has a life expectancy of around 30 years, while in captivity some have been known to live up to 45 years.
