Mandrills according to MammalMAP
Mandrills (Mandrillus sphinx) are the largest - and probably most conspicuous - of all monkeys. Male mandrills are far more colourful than females, and they use this colour as an advert of their virility as they try to win over the ladies. These social primates live in large, noisy troops headed up by a dominant male (‘drill sergeant?) who reigns over the lower ranking individuals. They are known to occur only in West Africa in Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Congo.
Mandrill population are buckling under the strain of habitat loss as their natural forests give way to crops and villages. They are also targeted as bushmeat and consequently under IUCN species classifications they are considered ‘Vulnerable’.
