I love mandrills! Here I am as happy as can be as I am so very close to one. In December I worked at Limbe Wildlife Centre in Cameroon looking after primates rescued from the illegal bushmeat and pet trade.

Mandrills are related to the baboon and have a coat that ranges in color from dark brown to olive gray. The adult male has a bright red nose and blue cheeks and a blue rump. The colors on females and juveniles are much duller. Mandrills have cheek pouches that can hold a substantial quantity of food. They can use these to leave their hands free if they have to flee.

Mandrills live in rain forests with little ground cover. They are found in Africa from Cameroon to Guinea.
