"Well I'll Be a Monkey's Uncle!"
The Blue Monkey (Cercopithecus mitis stuhlmanni) is found in rain forest and mountain bamboo forests from Angola to southwest Ethiopia and southern Africa. It is arboreal with a bluish-grey mantle and black limbs. It is a dark, stoutly built Guenon of the Family Cercopithecidae that includes all the monkeys of the old world. Like others in its family, it has ischial callosities on the rump to allow it to sit on hard surfaces for long periods. It also has cheek pouches which extend beneath the neck skin. These pouches allow the animal to gather food rapidly and then retire to a safer refuge for more leisurely feeding.
