Anatomy: Mandrills have a large, muscular body, dark brown fur, and a short, stubby tail. The face and buttocks are hairless and brightly colored. The male's face has a bright blue muzzle and bright red nose; these colors are also on the buttocks. When the male mandrill is angry or otherwise excited, the colors become even brighter. The female has duller colors. Mandrills grow to be about 30 inches (78 cm) long and weigh about 55 pounds (25 kg). Males have large, pointed canine teeth.
Diet: Mandrills eat mostly plants, but also eat insects and other small animals, including lizards and snakes.
Predators: Leopards, cheetahs, and people hunt the mandrill.
