Olive baboon, Papio Anubis, Olive baboons are widespread throughout equatorial Africa and are found in 25 countries. From the west coast of Africa moving eastward. In the picture there is a mother with a juvenile, the mother is eating some grass and the small one is in its back. In Uganda, olive baboons live in open woodland bordered by savannah and in evergreen tropical forests At Queen Elizabeth National Park, situated in Uganda, near the border of Democratic Republic of Congo, the habitat is characterized by dense forest, coarse wet grass, short grass and open grassland. Olive baboons consume a wide variety of foods and they can adapt to very different kind of habitats, from desert to mountain forest because they have many different strategies and habilities to extract food and nutrients. Baboons are omnivores and consume a huge variety of vegetables, insects, birds, eggs, and vertebrates including other primates. The Olive Baboon is one of the largest baboons, with the males being larger than the females. Their body length is 60, 86 cm, their tail length is 41, 58 cm and they weigh between 22 and 37 Kg. There is some geographical variation in average size. They have an olive green/grey coat that covers their bodies and a black face. The males have large canine teeth where as the teeth of females are much smaller. They move around on all four limbs. They live in troops of males and females that consist of between 20 and 50 members. The picture was taken in Ugande, in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, near the Kazinga channel., Uganda, Africa, East-africa

Views of the Drake Passage, the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn, Chile and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. It connects the southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean (Scotia Sea) with the southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean and extends into the Southern Ocean. The passage is named after the 16th century English privateer Sir Francis Drake, whose only remaining ship after passing through the Strait of Magellan was blown far South in September 1578 and who inferred an open connection of the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Half a century earlier, after a gale had pushed them South from the entrance of the Strait of Magellan, the crew of the Spanish navigator Francisco de Hoces thought they saw a land's end and possibly inferred this passage in 1525. For this reason, some Spanish and Latin American historians and sources call it Mar de Hoces after Francisco de Hoces. The first recorded voyage through the passage was that of the Eendracht, captained by the Dutch navigator Willem Schouten in 1616, naming Cape Horn in the process. The 800 km (500 miles) wide passage between Cape Horn and Greenwich Island is the shortest crossing from Antarctica to the rest of the world's land. The boundary between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans is sometimes taken to be a line drawn from Cape Horn to Snow Island (130 km (80 miles) north of mainland Antarctica). Alternatively the meridian that passes through Cape Horn may be taken as the boundary. Both boundaries lie entirely within the Drake Passage. There is no significant land anywhere around the world at the latitudes of the Drake Passage, which is important to the unimpeded flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current which carries a huge volume of water (about 600 times the flow of the Amazon River) through the Passage and around Antarctica.

Views of Adelaide Island. Adelaide Island (or Isla Adelaida or Isla Belgrano) is a large, mainly ice-covered island, 75 miles long and 20 miles wide, lying at the north side of Marguerite Bay off the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The island lies within the Argentine, British and Chilean Antarctic claims, at 67ø15'S 68ø30'W  67.25øS 68.5øW/ -67.25; -68.5.Adelaide Island was discovered in 1832 by a British expedition under John Biscoe. The island was first surveyed by the French Antarctic Expedition (1908-1910) under Jean-Baptiste Charcot. The source of the island's name is unknown. British Antarctic Survey records state that Charcot named the island "Adelie Land" after the huge number of Adelie Penguins that lived on its coast (the penguins being named after the wife of Dumont d'Urville). This in turn was turned into Adelaide Island by the British Graham Land Expedition (1934 -37). It has also been supposed that the island was in fact named by Biscoe himself for Queen Adelaide of the United Kingdom. The Island has 2 bases on it. The old Adelaide Island base (also known as Base T) was set up by the Falkland Islands Dependent Survey (FIDS), which became the British Antarctic Survey. The Base was closed due to an unstable skiway and operations were moved to the new Rothera Station during 1976 / 1977, this base remains open to this day. The old BAS base was transferred to the Chilean Authorities in 1984, when it was renamed Teniente Luis Carvajal Villaroel Antarctic Base. The station was then used as a summer only station by the Chileans. However the skiway, and 'ramp' to the station from the plateau have all become so unstable, that the Chilean Air Force (FACh) have stopped all there activities there. The Chilean Navy have visited the station almost every summer to ensure it is in good keeping. BAS employees also visit the station during the winter when access from the plateau is easier.Due to the length of time that it has been inhabited the island is well

The boundary between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans is sometimes taken to be a line drawn from Cape Horn to Snow Island (130 km (80 miles) north of mainland Antarctica). Alternatively the meridian that passes through Cape Horn may be taken as the boundary. Both boundaries lie entirely within the Drake Passage. There is no significant land anywhere around the world at the latitudes of the Drake Passage, which is important to the unimpeded flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current which carries a huge volume of water (about 600 times the flow of the Amazon River) through the Passage and around Antarctica.
979-4396 - Views of the Drake Passage, the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn, Chile and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. It connects the southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean (Scotia Sea) with the southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean and extends into the Southern Ocean. The passage is named after the 16th century English privateer Sir Francis Drake, whose only remaining ship after passing through the Strait of Magellan was blown far South in September 1578 and who inferred an open connection of the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Half a century earlier, after a gale had pushed them South from the entrance of the Strait of Magellan, the crew of the Spanish navigator Francisco de Hoces thought they saw a land's end and possibly inferred this passage in 1525. For this reason, some Spanish and Latin American historians and sources call it Mar de Hoces after Francisco de Hoces. The first recorded voyage through the passage was that of the Eendracht, captained by the Dutch navigator Willem Schouten in 1616, naming Cape Horn in the process. The 800 km (500 miles) wide passage between Cape Horn and Greenwich Island is the shortest crossing from Antarctica to the rest of the world's land.
