:Zack,
:Always get pairs.... One animal by its self is useless..... If you are going to keep these animals always try to breed..... Well thats just my opinion..... I hate to see wild caughts for sale..... Lets say out of all the gaboons imported into this country only 5 to 7% live past the first two years in captivity..... Pretty crappy huh??? I have seen hundreds of imported gaboons and every single one I have seen has that tall ridge down the back.... Not to mention all the wonderful parasites that come with them

Hey,
I also agree with you. I think I definetly will get a pair if any. I too also hate to see so many wc animals for sale and are heavily parasited. I have never kept gaboons so why do such a small percent live past 2 years? I saw wc gaboons at Hamburg last weekend and I think every single one had that ridge you describe. Thanks for you input, Zack
