We just learned about the Olive Baboon.

Another type of old world monkey is the Gelada, also sometimes called the bleeding-heart monkey.

This type of monkey is lives only in the mountains in Ethiopia.
They grow to be about 40 pounds and a little over 2 feet tall.

These monkeys have mostly black or brown fur, but they have an hourglass shaped place on their chest with no hair where their skin is bright red.
They usually sleep on the cliffs in the mountains and then go to the grassland areas to eat.
