Vervet Monkeys have a silver-grey body with a marked black face. The ridge of the eyebrows is white, and so are the feet and tail tip. The diet tends to be omnivorous, feeding on fruit, flowers, leaves, and insects, which constitutes the bulk of their diet. Primates are amongst the few mammals with color vision, which allows Vervet Monkeys to distinguish between green and ripe fruit. A sufficient density of tall trees and the availability of permanent surface water, allow this primate to occur in a wide variety of macro environments. They are regarded primarily as a forest edge specialist. The vervet monkey is common throughout South Africa and occurs wherever essential habitat requirements are met.
