Signage Example at Yorkshire WP, 01/04/13

"The 5 Baboon Species" I couldn't get a picture of the species sign as I normally do with new arrivals at YWP as there were photographers lined up all along that section!

      "The 5 Baboon Species"

      I couldn\'t get a picture of the species sign as I normally do with new arrivals at YWP as there were photographers lined up all along that section!
    • Dicerorhinus
      Isn't there a very obvious error on this sign?

      Great photos as always Maguari!
    • Pertinax
      Do you mean omission of reference to Gelada? It may be because its not always classed as a 'true' Baboon species?

      Or are you referring to something else?
    • DesertRhino150
      Isn't the yellow baboon photo actually a Barbary macaque? That's certainly what it looks like.
    • Pertinax
      I believe you are correct!;)
    • Dicerorhinus
      Yes, I'm talking about the Barbary macaque!

      After the fuss made over the signage at another UK collection it'll be inerrsting to see where this goes.

      I'm surprised Maguari didn't notice it to be honest!

      It´s one of the first pics you see when you look for Yellow Baboon.

      Maybe it wasn´t made by a zoo professional, it may have been made by a signage company? :D
    • Maguari
      I'm also surprised! :D

      I read over all the text (and saw the auto-correct error in the capitalised 'Anubis') but missed that photo error altogether!
    • Maguari
      Checked today and we now have a Yellow Baboon on the sign (though still a capital 'A' for anubis...):

      ZooChat nerds strike again!:) Now we need to change that damn Chester Zoo map...
