Sometimes we wonder strange things around here: did an Andrewsarchus eat the only successful time traveler? Why on Earth are baboon behinds bright red? We believe in asking questions at TPF because the search for answers is usually pretty fun, especially when animals are involved. If you've ever wondered about baboon posteriors, we have the answer for you! Apparently, it's all about fertility. Young, female baboons have bright red derrieres in order to let the males know they are ready to create more baboons. And now we know the answer to at least one of our questions. Only the Andrewsarchus knows the answer to the other one, and it isn't talking.
