A Galagos also known as a bushbaby and a seven-month old yellow baboon (Papio cynocelphalus) live in the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) headquarters in Nairobi.

They are getting along really well with each other, defying nature, Reuters reported.

The baboon was rescued in Maralal, in the northern part of Kenya while the galagos was rescued in Nyeri, located in central Kenya.

Yellow baboons usually live in the eastern forests of Africa in the forest and are baboons from the Old World monkey family.

Galagos are small, nocturnal primates native to continental Africa, and make up the family Galagidae (also sometimes called Galagonidae). They are sometimes included as a subfamily within the Lorisidae or Loridae.
