Why are Baboons designated Papio "Ursinus"; what is bear-like about them?

All baboon species come under the genus Papio. Papio Ursinus is the largest baboon; the Chacma.
The naming could be down to a bear-like gait, Chacma's size comparative to other baboons or something else entirely; identifiable ursine characteristics.
