Adult male baboons engage in dominance

Four adult male baboons (Papio cyanocephalus) engage in dominance interactions such as teeth-baring and glaring in the Amboseli basin, Kenya.

[These animals are part of the long term Amboseli Baboon Research Project, which has been supported over the years by the U.S. National Science Foundation (grant IOS 1456832).]
