Mandrillus leucophaeus

The drill is a species of short-tailed monkey, closely related to the mandrill and baboons. They are sexually dimorphic, with the male (pictured) up to three times the size of the female.



Size: Head-body length 61- 74cm
Weight: 2.6 – 3.7kg



The drill is found in rainforests in Nigeria, Cameroon and on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea.



Drill are omnivores and have been found to eat a wide variety of food in the wild. Their diet includes fruit, leaves, roots and insects, but they have also been seen to eat giant African land snails, mushrooms, turtle eggs, crustaceans and coconuts!



The female gives birth to one young after a 7 1/2 month pregnancy and will usually have young once every 2 years.



Hunting and deforestation are major threats for this species. Although protected in most of its range, hunting still continues, and a community education project is underway to encourage protection.
