Mini-Quiz: Baboon Troop Develops Unique Culture

by Ron Kurtus (updated 19 January 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why were baboon thought to be genetically argumentative?

Observations indicated all groups acted that way

Because they are so similar to humans

Their DNA indicated that was the case

2. Why didn't the remaining male baboons take over?

They were afraid the other males would come back

Dominant females have a greater rank than low-level, meek males

They did take over and started some new rules

3. Why didn't the new males to the group change the culture?

They liked what they saw and enjoyed the peace and quiet

They did change it back to the argumentative ways

They were in a minority

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Understanding Behavior. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Every group can change for the better
