This is a photo of Guinea baboons; over twenty of them were on a peanut field.

One of the world’s longest-running studies of a wild primate has revealed that female baboons that are suckling young are much slower to heal from injuries. Observations made over the past 29 years in Kenya also show that females are mostly injured on days when they are likely to conceive. The study, published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, is led by Elizabeth Archie of the University of Notre Dame in the US and the National Museums of Kenya: here.
