    Give it a year or two. Some enterprising individual will get them. Baboons are pretty hardy for the most part. If these are like others, they'll turn up.

    This was discovered a while ago. There is apparently a couple SA taxonomists writing a paper.

    It will end up smuggled to Europe sometime soon. Expect a heavy tag.
