Gelada Baboon

This primate looks like it’s trying to show off some cleavage in the winter. Gelada Baboons reside in Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains and are recognized for their hairy appearance, elongated faces and bald pink spot in the shape of a triangle on their chests. When threatened, the baboons have an advantage of being able to climb over cliffs to escape predators, giving them better chances of survival.
