I went to the zoo yesterday, to do some primate observation for Anthropology 10 class in UP. I was lucky to have found the perfect excuse to go to the zoo - this zoo where I went. Last I went there was like when I was a kid. I can’t remember when.

So there are 4 kind of Primates in this zoo.

a. Philippine Monkey (Macaca philippinensis) ? unggoy

b. Yellow Baboon (Papio cynocephalus)

c. Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus)

d. Gibbon

I have observed the Yellow Baboon. Here’s a picture of the monkey.
