I don't believe there were keepers for this baboon-whatzit. The Scott Makakill or whoever guy claimed to have taken the pictures in the wild.

But yeah, I've also read other documented cases where non-human primates have continued to care for their young after they've long since died. I've never read a case where a chimpanzee, bonobo, gorilla, or orangutan (you know, the Great Apes) continued to care for its young after death.

Unless I'm confusing it with another baboon mother carrying around her child's rotting corpse for days, I saw this story on Animal Planet years ago.
