The mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Old
World monkey (Cercopithecidae) family. It is one of two species assigned to the
genus Mandrillus, along with the drill. Both the mandrill and the drill were
once classified as baboons in the genus Papio, but they now have their own
genus, Mandrillus. Although they look superficially like baboons, they are more
closely related to Cercocebus mangabeys. Mandrills are found in southern
Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo. Mandrills mostly live in
tropical rainforests. They live in very large groups. Mandrills have an
omnivorous diet consisting mostly of fruits and insects.
Lion cubs are born with tawny black spots which eventually
disappears as they grow older. When it is time to give birth a lioness leaves
her pride and has her lion cubs in dense cover. Cubs remain hidden for one to
two months before being introduced to the rest of the pride.
Set includes both animals with walking stick and gourd.
