Abstract : Study of the clinical hemograms of 73 sooty mangabeys and 18 baboons was carried out. The baboon erythrocyte was slightly larger and had more hemoglobin/cell. The hematocrit and MCHC were nearly identical. The WBC counts of the mangabeys were 3,000 cells/cu mm greater than the baboons. The ratio of lymphocytes to neutrophils was 3 to 1 for the mangabeys and 2.5 to 1 for the baboons. The mangabey erythrocyte was more susceptible to osmotic lysis than the baboon and the male erythrocyte of both species was more fragile than the female. (Author)
