      Where did they source so many baboons from?

      Baboons are prolific breeders - it's probably just been bred up over the years. There are other places with similarly huge groups (Knowsley, Cologne, Emmen?).

      The initial troop of about 60+ baboons were sourced from 2 zoos if i'm not mistaken, one in the Netherlands and one in Sri Lanka I think. The two separate groups were mixed into the exhibit and from there on they couldn't stop breeding. There are about 90 baboons now.

      Do you mean how large the exhibit is? If so it's about 2000 square metres (21,500 square feet).
