Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Two drills are having a play fight. It looks violent, but the smaller one kept egging the bigger one on…

I was in Cameroon, working at the Limbe Wildlife Centre, looking after rescued primates.

The male drill is one of the most colourful monkeys in the world. When he is grown up he has a red chin on a black face with raised grooves exaggerating the shape of his nose. Also, his bottom is pink, mauve and blue! These bright colours help his family follow him through the forest.

The drill only lives in three countries: Cameroon’s Southwest Province, South East Nigeria and Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea.
The drill is Africa’s most endangered primate. A mother drill only has one young every six years, and a hunter can easily kill 30 Drills in a day. They are also losing their forest home
