Two little baboons - level 2
Two baby baboons made their first public appearance at a zoo in Brooklyn.
They were born only weeks apart on August 9th and September 26th. They have two different mothers who are both ten years old. They have one father. He is a 21 year-old male.
Baboons are large ground-dwelling animals. They are native to northeastern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula where they can be found in rocky areas. The animals are highly social. They groom each other often.
Difficult words: ground-dwelling (living mainly on the ground), peninsula (land which is almost an island), groom (brush and clean).
