My Way

“Are you going my way?” says the Mandrill. He is headed on a journey.

According to National Geographic,”Mandrills are the largest of all monkeys. They are shy and reclusive primates that live only in the rain forests of equatorial Africa. Mandrills are extremely colorful, perhaps more so than any other mammal. They are easily identifiable by the blue and red skin on their faces and their brightly hued rumps.”

Gibbon Intently Looking

I took this photo but then had a hard time trying to remember what type of primate this was.  I thought it might have been an orangutan because of the orange colouring but the face was different. Plus, it has a smaller frame.  I finally figured out that this monkey is actually what is called Gibbon or a Lesser Ape.  Apparently, they pair bond which is different than the Greater Ape.  Plus, I learned that their primary form of locomotion is called “brachiation” where they can swing from branch to branch for distances of up to 15 meters or 50 feet  with speeds as high as 55 km/h or 34 mph.
