Uganda Mangabey

We just learned about the Lion Tailed Macaque.

Another type of Old World Monkey is the Uganda Mangabey, also called the lophocebus ugandae.

Just like you would think from the name, these monkeys live in Uganda.
They grow to be about 3 feet long, weighing about 24 pounds.

Usually these monkeys live in the forests, but they go down to the ground for food, where they eat mostly fruits, nuts and seeds.
