The Dent’s Mona Monkeys, Rwanda’s unique Monkey Type to See

Dent Mona monkeys have got a long black tail, a white rump and the brown back. Their faces are quite furry and when these find food, they carry it off with their large cheek pouches.

In Rwanda, They are found in Nyungwe Forest National Park. While tracking them, you will also get chance to see other monkey species like the blue monkeys, or the grey Mangabeys as well as the large groups of Ruwenzori Colobus Monkeys.

Their groups are relatively smaller with one male surrounded by his Harem, and once again with other monkeys and its female that rules the group.

When they find food they carry it off with their large cheek pouches. They prefer fruit but at times will resort to leaves and even insects.
