Your morning adorable: Baby mandrill at the Munich Zoo
Adult mandrills, especially males, are known for their vivid coloring, which becomes even brighter when they're excited. Males like this fellow can grow to weigh about 60 pounds (females like the Bioparco Zoo's baby mandrill, Blanca, are somewhat smaller).
Mandrills are related to baboons and are sometimes called "forest baboons." They're native to the rain forests of Africa, where they're considered threatened, in part because they're often hunted for their meat.
