About This Animal
- SHAKE THAT BOOTY!: A lot of people wonder
why baboons have pink rear ends. Doesn't it look funny?
Actually, baboons have two pink rump pads. These pads are great
for sitting on and act like pudgy pink cushions. Female baboons
have bigger rump pads than males do. When it's time to mate, a
female's bottom swells even larger. It's her way of saying to the
guys "I want to mate!".
