The odd-looking Mandrill is found in tropical African rainforests. The vibrant coloration on its hairless face is to help males attract females. Larger Mandrills with brighter coloration will be the most dominant in the horde (the term for a large group of Mandrills).
Scientific Name: Mandrillus sphinx

Size and Color: This hand-painted Mandrill figure features a mainly brown coat of fur, with accents of dark brown, light brown, white, and yellow ochre. The hairless areas are painted in reds and blues. The Mandrill is about 3 ¾ inches long and just under 3 inches tall, a little bit bigger than a standard paper sticky note.
