Mandrill

Hi my name is Jairus and I'll be talking to you about mandrills -- hope you guys enjoy.

Mandrills are extremely colorful, perhaps more so than any other mammal. They are easily identifiable by the blue and red skin on their faces and their brightly hued rumps. These distinctive colors become brighter when the animal is excited. They also have extremely long canine teeth that can be used for self-defense—though baring them is typically a friendly gesture among mandrills. Mandrills are the largest of all monkeys. Did you know that mandrills are endangered and are classified as vulnerable.
