About this deal

Mandrills live in large "supergroups" or "hordes" that can contain hundreds of individuals. [40] [50] [51] These large groups are fairly stable and do not appear to be gatherings of smaller ones. At Lopé National Park, Gabon, mandrill hordes were found to have an average of 620 individuals, and some groups were as large as 845, making them possibly the largest cohesive groups of wild primates. [51] Another study in Lopé found that a horde of 625 mandrills consisted of 21 dominant males, 71 less dominant and subadult males, 247 adult and adolescent females, 200 juveniles, and 86 dependent infants. [40] A mandrill horde of around 700 individuals in northern Lopé had a total home range of 182km 2 (70sqmi), 89km 2 (34sqmi) of which was suitable habitat. The supergroup would occasionally diverge into two to four subgroups before reuniting. [52] Another 15-month long study of a 120 member group found a home range of 8.6km 2 (3.3sqmi) with an average traveling distance of 2.42km (1.50mi) per day.

Vervet monkeys are classified as an animal of least concern on the IUCN Red List. However, the scientific data is limited and out of date. We simply do not know the current vervet monkey population and whether it is declining or stable.

[9] Protecting the species could be challenging, as species with such a small range can go from vulnerable to seriously endangered in a few years. The lesula's range is within the Tshuapa–Lomami–Lualaba Conservation Landscape, and the Lomami National Park has been proposed to protect this and other species in the region.Generally, red skin is sexually attractive to all macaques. The female macaque love males with redder butts.
