THE LAST DAY OF MUSTACHES FOR MOVEMBER
We did it! We made it to the end of the month. Our team at Gates Wildlife did an amazing job this much growing their mustaches and doing their part to raise awareness for the cause. Our team has surpassed our target by raising $1370 so far. At the end of the day I will be going over our reviews for the month and will donate $5.00 per review to our donation page.
For our final animal in our series, we bring you the Patas Monkey. These monkeys are long-limbed and predominately found on the ground in the grass regions of West and Central Africa. The adult male Patas Monkey has shaggy fur with a white moustache and white underparts with a build like a greyhound. The email has a similar but less-striking pattern and build.
- Patas Monkeys are the fastest primates on earth as they can run up to 35 MPH.
- They are diurnal and spend the day grooming, interacting socially and foraging for food. At night they spread out in the trees as protection from predators.
- Their predators include hyenas, raptors, cheetahs, jaguars, tigers and humans!
- Their lifespan in the wild is 15-20 years and 21-24 years in captivity.
