Dents Mona Monkey

Dent’s mona monkey  is an Old World monkey in the family Cercopithecidae found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Congo, Rwanda, western Uganda, and the Central African Republic.It was previously classified as a subspecies of Wolf’s mona monkey. Verifying whether they are a subspecies or a separate species is dependent on further research that needs to be done at the contact zone of Cercopithecus dentiCercopithecus wolfi, and Cercopithecus wolfi elegans, in the forests between the Lualaba and Lomani rivers, south of the junction of the Congo and the Lomani rivers.

They are classed as least concern at the current time, though we have seen that this can change very fast.

As we connect with people and places, they will be added below the news section that is directly below this section.
