Collared Mangabey

We just learned about the Gelada.

Another type of Old World Monkey is the Collared Mangabey, also called the red capped mangabey, white collared mangabey and cercocebus torquatus.

This monkey has grey fur with a brown red top of its head and white fur around its neck like a collar.
It also has white eyelids, so sometimes people think it looks like it has four eyes.

These monkeys grow to be about 22 pounds and two feet long.
