Answer to clue 2:
Why Do Baboons Make Faces?
Baboons make a lot of faces. Sometimes they look as if they are smiling. Sometimes they raise their eyebrows. Or they can even make a face like the one you see here. Whatever face a baboon makes, the face sends information to other baboons.
Baboons are social animals. They live in troops, or large groups. Good communication between troop members is important. It can help prevent fights. And it can keep everybody safe.
When a baboon makes a face, it is trying to communicate a specific message. If a baboon shows off its sharp teeth, it’s telling other baboons, “Be careful or else!” If a baboon grins, it’s telling another baboon, “I’m sorry.”
