Talking to me, are you?

Dad mandrill – "Who’s de boss here? "

The Mandrill (wikipedia ) is found in moist evergreen rainforest in central west Africa.
Native in Cameroon; Congo; Equatorial Guinea and Gabon

The Mandrill is listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species – Status: Vulnerable.
Threats: This species is affected by the destruction of its evergreen forest habitat since this reduces the capacity of environments to support Mandrill populations. However, the most immediate threat is posed by hunting for their meat (which is highly prized in Gabon). Commercial bushmeat hunters pose a particular threat to populations which are located close to main roads and towns. Mandrills appear to be most seriously threatened in Congo (Brazzaville).

Praat je tegen mij?

Vader mandril – “Wie is hier de baas?”

De mandril (wikipedia ) leeft in het vochtige regenwoud van Centraal West Africa (Kameroen, Kongo, Equatoriaal Guinea en Gabon)

De mandril staat op de IUCN Rode Lijst van Bedreigde Soorten – Status: kwetsbaar
Bedreigingen: Deze soort is bedreigd door de verwoesting van het regenwoud, het enige leefgebied van de Mandrils. De grootste bedreiging echter is de jacht. Het vlees van de mandril is zeer gezocht in Gabon. Commerciële wild jagers vormen een grote bedreiging voor populaties di leven dichtbij hoofdwegen of grote steden. Mandrils blijken meest bedreigd in Congo Brazzaville.
