Rocky, Cameroon (2007)

Rocky is a drill - a kind of monkey closely related to the better known mandrill (he of the blue face and red butt). Drills are considered one of Africa's most endangered mammals, with as few as 3,000 remaining in the wild. Rocky's mom was killed for meat, and Rocky was sold into the pet trade. He was found in a man's yard with a rope tied around his waist.
