L'Hoest's Monkey

We just learned about the De Brazzs Monkey.

Another type of monkey is the L'Hoest's Monkey.

This type of monkey is known as a guenon monkey, and it lives in the middle of Africa in an area called the Congo basin.
The live in mountains with forests, and have dark fur with a white fury beard.

These are small monkeys, only about 2 feet long and weighing around 13 pounds.
They spend most of their time in the trees, and even sleep in the trees.
