Olive Baboon

Today my hubby took an Olive Baboon in his lunch bag.

It isn’t easy being green. Not a color you expect from an animal! The mix of yellow, brown and black hairs on a Olive Baboon, however, make them look as green as green can be! My scanner didn’t want to believe it though, and my baboon just looks yellow.

  1. Oh my gosh, look at those plaintive eyes. He has a piercing gaze, I can only imagine what this handsome boy is thinking. A beautiful portrait, so well done, Sandra. Can I be your hubby for a day? I can provide my own lunch bag.
