Abstract

Male and female weight percentiles for 24 nursery reared infant baboons (Papio cynocephalus) were developed from weight measurements made from birth to 15 weeks of age. True birth weights could not be obtained and weights at the time of removal from the mother (18-24 hours after parturition) were used as initial weights. The difference in initial weights for males compared to females was found to be statistically significant with males having greater initial weights.
