Prickly Pear and Olive Baboons – Explanation

One of the members of the cactus family has made its way into the olive baboons diet. It is called the the opuntia and is also known as the prickly pear. But what is the problem with this fruit?

This fruit has been growing in a place called Kenya, which is around central Africa. The baboons have limited food supply and have found a fruit that grows heaps in the area. But other animals in Kenya have not adapted to this new fruit. In fact, things are getting so serious that some died from it. And that could be a big problem for the humans living in Kenya, as livestock is slowly dying out.

aSo this fruit may be good for some but not as good for others.
