With their home in the African jungles, these are the largest monkeys in the world. It is believed that, in the process of evolution, the Mandrill decided to stay and live on the ground, where it had fewer competitors.
The striking coloring of its face relates to hierarchy and age: while infants have incipient tones, adolescents are are more defined, and in adulthood they show their permanent colors.
Their tribes, also known as troops, consist of 10 to 12 females, young males and infants. The adult male is the leader.
Mandrills communicate with grunts, but also use other, more subtle forms of expression, such as when they yawn and show their canine teeth. In this case, rather than being a threat, is perhaps a show of strength.
These omnivorous monkeys feed on roots, tubers, fruits, insects, worms and small mammals.
Gestation lasts from five to six months, and ends with the female giving birth to one baby.
