Vervet Monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops)

Vervet Monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops)
Like humans, the vervet monkey has
five digits on each foot, with the thumb
off to the side of the pad and the other
four digits in front. The hands are a lot
smaller than the feet. The feet have an
elongated rear section. The thumb and
the big toe are opposable, and each
finger has a nail, although these are not
visible in the track.

Chacma Baboon (Papio ursinus)

Chacma Baboon (Papio ursinus)
The track of the baboon is very similar
to that of the vervet monkey, just a lot
larger. Each foot has five digits, as do
the hands. The palm is a lot smaller
than the base of the foot. The thumb
and big toe are fully opposable, and
each finger and toe has a nail. Again,
the feet are twice as long as the hands.
