Green monkeys or Grivet monkeys live in the savannas south of the Sahara. They live a lot on the ground but flee immediately to the trees when danger threatens. Green monkeys have a dark face with a white beard that protrudes from the cheeks.

Their fur is slightly greenish or yellowish brown on the upper side. In Africa, green monkeys migrate in large hordes, they consist of males, females and young animals of all ages. There do not seem to be any fixed pairs, rather females mate with several partners. These monkeys are omnivores. They hunt insects, scorpions, millipedes and lizards, but also eat onions, tubers, roots, nuts, fruits and leaves.
