EDIT: OH MY WORD! A DD! THIS IS SO INSANELY AMAZING AND WONDERFUL! THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH TO Leafbreeze7 AND Anoya AND ALL OF YOU GUYS FOR YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! IT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME! :hug:

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.

Taken at the Denver Zoo.

Wow, those eyes and that colouration on it's skin! I've never actually seen a mandrill in real photos or in real life before, this is a really interesting shot of one! Their faces are longer than I thought they'd be, not as forward facing as a baboon's. Great photo!
