I wonder what the article has to say about it?

Dr. Strum (a professor at the University of California, San Diego) has been studying baboons in Kenya for some time. She reports that one Opuntia species has invaded one or two of her studies areas in the past years–she’s observed baboons eating the fruit (and elephants eating the fruit too).
