The Mandrill is the world’s largest species of monkey. The word mandrill means “man-ape” according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Mandrills are endangered and are hunted for food , either with guns or using dogs and nets. In Cameroon, habitat loss to agriculture is also a threat.

Mandrills are closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the drill.

They live in Central west Africa, Gabon, Congo and Cameroon

    Wow, your capture of their eyes is precision itself. The glass-like quality you have captured with your angle is wonderous. The fingers around his face as a very human reaction when one is considering something – right place right tme and perfectly executed.

  • Thank you so much, I really appreciate what you say :)
