Mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx)

Group of measured illustrations of the Mandrill seen from the front and side

The Mandrill (Mandrillus Sphinx) is a species of large primate native to equatorial Africa. Mandrills have brightly colored faces and just as brightly colored rumps. Their coloring not only labels them as attractive to their mates, but also helps them to follow each other through the dense and dark jungle. They are the largest of the Old World Monkeys in the world. Mandrills live in tropical rainforests, and while they mostly walk along the forest floor, their opposable thumbs allow them to climb all the way to the canopy. Much like pet hamsters, mandrills have cheek pouches for food storage. They eat fruits and nuts as well as small animals.

Mandrills have a head-body length of 21.7”-37.4” (55-95 cm), tail length of 2”-3.9” (5-10 cm), height on all fours of 20.5”-35.4” (52-90 cm), and body width between 9.4”-16.5” (24-42 cm). The typical weight of the Mandrill is in the range of 26.5-81.5 lb (12-37 kg). Mandrills have lifespans between 20-28 years in the wild and 32-40 years in captivity.
