Baboon by the bay

While some species suffer from human activity and will avoid people whenever possible, others are able to thrive in human environments.

Animals with certain requirements, such as large areas or specific food or nesting resources, or with body parts we humans like to turn into jewelry, clothing, or sushi, fall into the first category. Those that are smaller, able to eat various types of food or live in multiple environments, and don't threaten people or our stuff, have a better chance of thriving in our increasingly manmade world.

Here's one of the flexible ones – I'm guessing a Chacma baboon in South Africa – having a moment.

I love this photo -- I challenge you all to give it a worthy caption!
