Red-Capped Mangabey

red capped mangaby


The red-capped mangabey feeds primarily on fruits and nuts growing in its lush forest habitat, but supplements its diet with the stems and roots of plants in the undergrowth. These vulnerable monkeys are found in west and central Africa. At the KCZoo you can find them across the swinging bridge in Africa.
