L'Hoest's Monkey


L'Hoest's Monkey (Allochrocebus lhoesti) lives in Africa. They are native to the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda. They are real ‘forest monkeys’ who spend a lot of time on the ground. L‘Hoest’s monkeys live in multiple types of forests, ranging from tropical lowland forests to semi-mountainous woods and near water. They are sometimes known as ‘mountain monkeys’ because they have been spotted at altitudes as high as 2900 meters. They mostly live in mountainous forest areas in small, female-dominated groups. They have a dark coat and can be distinguished by a characteristic white beard.
