Ten years ago I took a course on primatology, and the instructor brought in a baboon’s skull to show the class. I don’t remember much from that class aside from the size of the razor-sharp canines on that baboon skull (oh, and the vervet monkey’s anatomy. very memorable). Anyway, a little glory for the reviled and risible Papionini. Drillgon is what happens when you fire DBZ and TTGL at each other out of a cannon, yes.
