Artist's Description


(Wikipedia) The Wolf’s Mona Monkey (Cercopithecus wolfi), also called Wolf’s Guenon, is a colorful Old World monkey in the Cercopithecidae family. It is found in central Africa, primarily between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. It lives in primary and secondary lowland rainforest and swamp forest.Guenons, the largest group of African primates, are very colorful. Their color is used in intraspecific communication for recognizing individuals, species, and potential mates. Wolf’s Mona Monkey is dark grey with a red “saddle” on its back. The pelage depends on the subspecies. C. wolfi wolfi has a chestnut-colored patch on the middle of its back. Its arms are black and legs are red. It has a yellow underside, occasionally with an orange stripe down its flanks. Its ear tufts are white.The male’s scrotum is blue. Wolf’s Mona Monkey is also sexually dimorphic in size. Males weigh, on average, almost twice as much as females (4.5 kg and 2.5 kg respectively). Its small size makes it susceptible to predators, especially the Crowned Eagle and the Leopard.
