Baboon
Common name applied to certain large African monkeys and sometimes to the closely related gelada.

Hairless Joe Chicken

Sphynx
The Sphynx is not the first instance of hairlessness in domestic cats.

Called the “Mexican Hairless,” these cats supposedly were obtained from Indians around Albuquerque.

Chinese seafarers are said to have kept the dogs on ship as ratters and curios and to have traded them with local merchants wherever they called. Thus, the breed was distributed throughout Turkey, Egypt, South Africa and possibly Central and South America.
