Mandrill is the largest existing monkey on earth. Although human beings belong to primates like mandrill, we and chimpanzees belong to the suborder of apes, and our blood relationship with monkeys is very different. As early as ten million years ago, human beings and close relatives of monkeys parted ways on the road of evolution.
The male mandrill can reach 70cm-80cm in length and 50kg in weight. It can be regarded as a behemoth in the monkey family, because the mandrill has a rare “ghost face”. The face of the mandrill is long and narrow, the bridge of the bright red nose, and the blue or white face make the face of the mandrill look like a ghost.
