New monkey species identified in Democratic Republic of Congo
Guardian:A new species of monkey has been identified in Africa in what is only the second time such a discovery has been made on the continent in 28 years. The finding is considered significant because the identification of mammals new to science is rare.
‘Lesula,’ as the monkey is known locally, has a naked face and mane of long blond hairs. Researchers say it is a shy and quiet creature that lives on the ground and in trees in a habitat of lowland rainforests.The animal’s diet consists of mostly fruit and vegetation.
