[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Vervet Monkey is a small primate and it's coat is predominately light grey and white. They have very long tails, which help them when they are in their natural habitat, the trees. The belly and flanks of the Vervet Monkey are much lighter than the upper parts of it's body. They have dark black faces with a stretch of white hair that almost frames these primates' face. The Green Monkey is smaller and weighs less than the Samango Monkey and is much more common. The end point of the tail and the Monkeys feet and hands are also very dark. They have blue coloured genitalia which is why some people call them the Blue Monkey.
