Pictures of red-tailed guenons, an African species that lives in lowland rain forests, mountain forests, swamps, and acacia woodlands. They mostly eat fruit, but they'll also eat leaves and small animals. Currently, this species is considered threatened, which is better than endangered.
The red-tailed guenon weighs 6-8 pounds and can live to 22 years. They give birth to one baby, usually from April to November. Their fur is speckled yellow and brown, with a white belly. Their face is black with blue fur around the eyes. Their cheeks are white.

They typically live in groups of 7-35, with one male and many different females.
