Mandrills are closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the drill. Mandrills mostly live in tropical rainforests and forest-savanna mosaics. They live in groups called hordes. Hordes often number in the hundreds, possibly averaging around 620 individuals and reaching as many as 845(!!!).
Mandrills have an omnivorous diet consisting mostly of fruits and insects.
The mandrill is considered vulnerable and is affected by deforestation. However, hunting for bushmeat is the more direct threat. Mandrills are particularly threatened in the Republic of the Congo.
