Caption: Chacma baboon (Papio ursinus) grooming pair. One is removing ticks and parasites from the other baboon's fur and skin. Grooming is an important and regular social activity. As well as promoting cleanliness it helps the members of a troop to bond. The chacma baboon inhabits scrub, woodland and semi-desert environments in southern Africa. Photographed in the De Hoop Nature Reserve, South Africa.
