Squirrels and hares are numerous, as are several kinds of monkeys, notably the guereza, gelada, guenon and dog-faced baboon.
PATAS MONKEY, a West African species of the guenon monkeys (see Guenon), characterized by its large size, the foxy-red colour of the upper parts, blue face and white belly.
DIANA MONKEY, a West African representative of the guenon monkeys taking its name, Cercopithecus diana, from the presence of a white crescent on the forehead; another characteristic feature being the pointed white beard.
GRIVET, a monkey, Cercopithecus sabaeus, of the guenon group, nearly allied to the green monkey.
GREEN MONKEY, a west African representative of the typical group of the guenon monkeys technically known as Cercopithecus callitrichus, taking its name from the olive-greenish hue of the fur of the back, which forms a marked contrast to the white whiskers and belly.
