How beautiful they kind of look like baboons.

Noted. Thanks Simone.
What interesting monkeys! I love how the females turn on the male if he isn't grooming them sufficiently.

That's the URL of a video - Part One of “What Females Want and Males Will Do,” biologist Chadden Hunter observes that in gelada society the females make all the decisions about mating, even though the males are twice their size. The top “family male,” Chewbacca, must always stay on top of his game. The eligible bachelors below him in rank are searching for his weaknesses.

I've heard of these and am glad to see that they are currently being studied.
