Diana monkey by Edward Gerrards circa 1910
Latin: Cercopithecus diana
This superb example of a Diana Monkey is as fine as can be found in any museum. The species can be found in several west African countries but usually occurs only in untouched forest where groups can be very noisy. Where their habitat has not been interfered with, they can be quite long-lived. This particular antique example was expertly prepared by the famous London taxidermy company Gerrards.
