Baryons are particles that are made of three quarks. There are five different quarks that can form baryons (the top-quark decays too fast), so 125 (5x5x5) baryons would be possible. In reality, probably less exist, discovered and free of doubt are 36. The only one which is stable as a free particle is the proton. Another very important one is the neutron. These two form the most part of the baryonic matter, our visible universe. Other baryons are very unstable.
