Biologists Tom Struhsaker, Colin Chapman, and Theresa Pope and surgeon Jeffrey Marcus,  director of Duke’s Cleft and Craniofacial Program, described the  discovery in June of this female baboon in Kibale National Park, Uganda  who appears to have been born without an upper jaw or the dog-like snout  of her species.  Struhsaker, Chapman and Pope watched and photographed  her for a half hour before she moved away.  She probably had one pair  of  upper molars, but it remains unknown how she fed. And with one  nursing juvenile and a pregnancy, she’s apparently not a social pariah.
