Mandrills and baboons

Postby Elijahbiggs29 » Wed Sep 02, 2020 3:10 pm

Hi,
Not really sure how this works but can anyone answer my question.
Why are baboons classed as lesser apes while mandrills are monkeys?
They are relatively the same size but mandrills are tail-less where as baboons have tails.
If you ask me baboons look more monkey-like than mandrills.
If any replies are left please include qualifications as I only want a real scientist’s reasoning.

Hello,
I am not working on a project just trying to “ask an expert”. If my question cannot be answered here then no worries, appreciate your time none the less.
