This species is one of the largest of all monkeys. They range through West central Africa, southern Cameroon, equatorial New Guinea, Gabon and Congo. They roam the forest floor during the day and sleep in trees at night.

Their food consists mostly of fruit, seeds, fungi, roots, insects and small vertebrates; they will also eat grass. Daughters stay with the mother¹s troop while males usually leave their natal troop around adolescence.
