In case of mass extinction of species the majority of primates is doomed for disappearance: their inhabiting - tropical woods - are one of the most vulnerable biotopes on land. But primates not all primates live in woods. a small amount of species of primates has develop new places of an inhabiting – savannas and mountains. Some macaques, guenons, baboons and geladas are those species. In case of global ecological accident they have chance of a survival: the probability of expansion of open inhabiting places is great due to disappearance of woods at a climat drying.

The furiobaboon is one of few primates of a Neocene, the descendant of the modern baboon (Papio cynocephalus). Adapted to life on open places, these species successfully exist in savanna. The animal mounts to weight of 40 kg (males) or 30 kg (females), lives by family groups on 10 - 20 animals. Externally the furiobaboon is similar to baboons known presently, but it differs from them by the short tail and bright sciatic callice - dark blue color with a white border. The animal quickly runs on four paws on short distances and reluctantly swarms up trees. The general colour of a body is sandy - yellow, at males the big grey mane is present. Than jaws of the furiobaboon are shorter, than at modern baboons, but they are much stronger, teeth are more similar to teeth of a predator, rather than the primate, canines are long, at males canines of the top jaw jut out from the closed mouth. Its diet has undergone significant changes: the furiobaboon is omnivorous with a strongly pronounced bias to predating. Small and medium-sized animals contain the most part of its diet. Monkey can eat a carrion, going at a large carcass with tens of ones. Frequently group of furiobaboons is organized hunts on large prey. Thus sticks and stones can be applied by them. By sticks and stones monkeys are beaten off from predators, frequently hammering in them to death. The young growth studies a long time in receptions of hunting. Different flights use the different methods of hunting transmitted by training from grown-ups to younger.

This animal species is aggressive, inside family groups there is a tough hierarchy.

There is bearing only one cub, it depends on mother long time. Youngsters study to get food, imitating adults. As a rule, all cubs of a clan are children of the dominant male.
