Greater Spot-nosed Guenon

Guenons use their long tails for balance and for communication. Tail position in guenons can often tell you about their level of excitement. They also communicate with facial expressions and calls.

Spot-nosed guenons often associate with other species of monkey. While they don't appear to interact each will heed the other's alarm calls.
