These are beautiful drills. I had the privilege of caring for them at Limbe Wildlife Centre in Cameroon.

Taken with Nikon D50 using 80-400mm lens.

Drills are highly endangered. There are only 3000 left in the wild in Cameroon.

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 an 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

    Great shot and I love the attitude from the one on the left… what a poser! Only one baby every six years? Wow! How long do they live? It’s no wonder they are so highly endangered if they’re being killed faster than they can reproduce. :o(

    A truckload of attitude from your friend on the left Jane xx
    Love the light on the hand of the one on the right and Mr Stern Faced being part of the trio at the back. The frame couldna been cropped any tighter or any better than this. 110% focus as ever with great bokeh – soooooo 3D.
    ABFAB.

  • Bless you darling Paul for your wonderful comments, as always xx
