Osumare, the Mandrill Facts:

  • World’s largest and most colourful species of monkey. Like a rainbow.
  • Has the most differences between males and females compared with other monkeys. Can you guess what they are?
  • Has extremely long canine teeth that can be used for self-defence—though showing them to each other is actually a friendly gesture. Just like when you really smile!
  • Cheeks have built-in pouches that are used to store snacks for later. That is handy!
