A list of my favorite images of mandrills.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandrill

The mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Old World monkey (Cercopithecidae) family.

It is one of two species assigned to the genus Mandrillus, along with the drill. Both the mandrill and the drill were once classified as baboons in the genus Papio but they now have their own genus, Mandrillus.

Although they look superficially like baboons, they are more closely related to Cerocebus mangabeys.

Mandrills are the world's largest monkeys. Charles Darwin wrote in The Descent of Man that "no other member in the whole class of mammals is coloured in so extraordinary a manner as the adult male mandrills".

Mandrills are found in southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Congo. Mandrills mostly live in tropical rainforests in very large groups.

Mandrills have an omnivorous diet consisting mostly of fruits and insects. Their mating season peaks in July to September, with a corresponding birth peak in December to April.

The mandrill is classified as vulnerable by IUCN.
