Animals in Sudan
Sudan lies in the Northeastern part of Africa and the majority of the county is Muslim and Christian. Sudan was the biggest country in the continent of Africa before south Sudan split from it. The largest country in the continent of Africa is now Algeria. Northern Sudan lies between the Egyptian border and Khartoum, it divided into two distinct parts, the Nile valley and the Nubian desert, to the east of the Nile valley lies Nubian desert and the Libyan desert lies to the west

Sudan is one of the most diverse countries in the world with almost 200 ethnic groups and over 900 languages as well as dialects although some of the smaller ethnic groups have disappeared mainly because of migration. When smaller ethnic groups moved or migrated to other parts of the country, they become part of the dominant language or dialect in that part of the country, and slowly disappeared.

Most parts of Sudan are in a desert, and baboons can live in different kinds of climates, in the desert as well as in the grassland. Other types of animals such as antelopes, barbary sheep,
