I spotted a group of blue monkeys in a village bordering Arusha National Park in Tanzania. Despite the name, blue monkeys are not noticeably blue but is mainly olive or gray apart from the face. Above is a mommy and baby blue monkeys staring at other monkeys looting our bag of tomatoes.
The blue monkey is found in evergreen forests and montane bamboo forests, and lives largely in the forest canopy, coming to the ground infrequently. It is very dependent on humid, shady areas with plenty of water. It eats mainly fruit and leaves, but will take some slower-moving invertebrates. It prefers to live in tall trees which provide both food and shelter.
