Baboons belong to the family of Old World monkeys. They inhabit most parts of Africa where they live in family groups, called troops. Smaller than chimpanzees and gorillas, they have long muzzles, and long tails.
In general, babblers are poor fliers with short, rounded wings and fairly long tails. They live near the ground, searching for berries and insects. Some species are drab but others have brilliant markings.
As a water insect, the backswimmer falls prey to the carnivorous animals present around its habitat. These include waterfowl, frogs, toads, and sometimes fish, such as trout or bass.
