1) Hamadryas baboons belong to a group of monkeys known as the cheek-pouched monkeys, because they have compartments in their cheeks that stretch to store food.
2) Hamadryas baboons live in one-male units (OMU). There is a male leader and several females and their offspring in a OMU. Single males might join a OMU or they might live alone. OMUs join together to form bands and several bands join together to form a troop.
