B is for Baboon

Two versions.  I like using the red lower case ‘b’ for the nostril, even if this is technically a feature of the Mandrill.  Alternatively the bottom of the Baboon is also famous for being red.  A lighter grey for the body works well as this is their natural colour.  In contrast, the deep set eyes and the nostril need to be printed in a heavy black in order to stand out.

Primarily found in Tanzania and Kenya, the baboons are threatened by the destruction of their natural habitat as well as a growing trade in their meat within Africa.
