The patas monkey is from Africa and it doesn’t like water. It’s able to go for long periods of time without water, but during a drought, it must have access to it.
The home range of the patas monkey is the largest known for any non-human primate, up to 30 square miles. It will live in a troop of 20 including one adult male and six to eight adult females, who stay together all their lives.
