Caption: Golden monkey (Cercopithecus kandti). This Old World monkey is listed as endangered. It is found in the Virunga mountains of Central Africa, where it lives in social groups that can be as large as 30 individuals. Its diet includes leaves and fruit. Here, the monkey is eating the bark of a eucalyptus tree. This tree (not native to the area) is farmed by locals who use its wood to make charcoal and housing. Photographed in Virunga Mountains National Park, Rwanda.
