Baboons are taking pets.

baboon_face-389I don’t know about the rest of you people, but for some reason I have always had a tad bit of paranoia over the continual procession of the evolutionary process…

It always occurred to me that if human beings were able to “evolve” as it were in this modern age- adapt ourselves to the changes in our environment- then why not other animals.

baboon-and-dog-largeOf course, these insane ideas always seemed to be more the product of an overactive imagination overstimulated by a steady diet of the Planet of the Apes franchise during my formative years than some sort of clairvoyance as to the fates of lives on this little blue-green marble. But regardless, I always kept an eye out for news about the advancement of animal intelligence and behaviors (especially with primates).

So imagine the terror I felt when clicking on this link tweeted out by Joe Rogan of a family pf baboons displaying the most unusual of behavior traits…

Check out this video of a baboon taking a puppy as a pet…



Evolve

I know this is total pot talk but what’s to say that evolution is not an on-going process…

We came down from the trees and slowly learned the skills necessary for survival on this planet… why not our primate cousins? 

If we are to believe in the theory of Charles Darwin, then there is no other conclusion than to assume that the process of evolution is an on-going one (not one that ended once humanity clawed their way to the top of the ladder) and that in time another life-form somewhat similar to ourselves is going to arrive on the scene and begin competing for the resources of this planet.

And, judging by the footage on the video provided, that time may be closer than ever.

Keep your heads on a swivel folks… these are interesting times we are living in…
