Mandrills are the world’s largest monkey. They are mainly terrestrial but will climb trees to forage.
Mandrills have brightly coloured markings that help identify individuals. There is a dominant male within a group of several females and youngsters. This dominant male is the largest and most vividly coloured. Harley is our dominant male within the group.
When Southport zoo closed we were asked by the owners to take on many species. Half of the zoo’s mandrills came to us.
