Vervet Monkey


Vervet monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops johnstoni) giving a leopard alarm call after spotting a leopard in the Okavango Delta in Botswana. When vervets see predators, they make alarm calls specific to the type of predator spotted, that alert the rest of the group. The leopard call causes the monkeys to run to the trees, while the eagle call provokes them to look up into the air and seek shelter.
