This is the De Brazza's Monkey known as swamp monkeys, they primarily live in flooded forests and swamps but they have also been found in bamboo and dry mountain forests near rivers and streams. They are both arboreal (tree dwelling) and terrestrial (ground dwelling). They are found in Cameron, Uganda, Angola, Kenya, Sudan. When visiting Howletts Wildlife Park I came across a whole family of these lovely monkeys. This one is the youngest and seemed to just want to sit on his own; I guess he was trying out his independence! I have had to darken the background because it was too distracting. Also the enclosure was incredibly dark too
