The Mandrill, or Mandrillus sphinx, is considered the world’s largest monkey. These majestic creatures weigh nearly as much as apes and stand out thanks to the striking colors on their face. There are two species total in this genus, with the other known simply as the Drill. Mandrills are part of the Old World monkey family, which refers to the fact that they live in Africa and Asia rather than America.

Mandrills are easy to spot not just because of their size, but also because of the unique red and blue coloring on their face. They also have enormous canine teeth—though when they bear them, this is usually a sign of affection, not aggression. Mandrills are common in African countries such as Cameroon, where they often dwell in the forests near rivers and wetlands. They have a Vulnerable conservation status, though their overall population is unknown.
