The Gelada monkey lives only in the high mountain grasslands, between 1400 and 4400 meters high in Ethiopia.
This baboon can weigh between 20-30 kg. Both males and females have a reddish breast that looks like an inverted heart.
This species has a 14-year life expectancy, a reproductive cycle of just over a month and a six-month gestation.
Unlike most primates, Gelada is exclusively terrestrial. It is a diurnal animal that lives in groups composed of a male leader, some females and other males known as followers. These flocks generally consist of 300 specimens.
