Figure 11. Muzzle-sniffing, seen here, appears to be an important source of information for infants about what is safe to eat and how various foods are processed; many baboon foods (e.g., grass corms, tree gum, tubers) require digging, opening, extracting, or separating from a substrate, and infants may require considerable time to gain the strength and knowledge to acquire these foods.
