Green Monkey

Green Monkey

Green Monkeys are highly social animals. They travel in small groups and are one of the few species to have multi-male groups.  A defining characteristic of this species is the greenish color of the upper parts of the face, which is caused by the banding together of individual hairs with black and yellow strands.
