Monkey outdoor the rooms at Royal Livingstone Hotel. Three types of monkey occur in Zambia. The vervet monkey is very common throughout a variety of woodland types. Moving in troops of about 20, they feed on young shoots, seeds and fruit but occasionally will eat insects and eggs. The blue monkey and Maloney’s monkey have occasionally been sighted in Luangwa, but their numbers are small. Bush baby, called so because of its loud wailing scream, the bushbaby is an elusive tree creature, usually only spotted on night drives and then only its red eyes can be seen high up in the trees. They spend their days in hollow trees and forage among the treetops at night for insects and fruit. Very agile in trees but awkward on the ground, hopping in a frog-like fashion. They are usually solitary, but may group together to form small and temporary communities. The chacma baboon and the yellow baboon occur in Zambia. They are both gregarious animals, occurring in troops of about 50 or more, feeding on the ground and in trees on fruit, seeds, rhizomes and insects. The basic unit is a harem – one dominant male surrounding himself with a number of breeding females. Their mating is frequent but for very short bursts at a time. They breed at any time of the year and their gestation period is about 6 months. They have a strictly disciplined society, each member of the troop knowing his own status and ruled over by an elite group of elders. Any member of the clan who tries to usurp another’s position is taken to task by the dominant males who gang up against the offender resulting in an explosion of screaming and squealing. The degree of dominance among ruling members of the clan is shown by the angle at which they hold their tails: the higher the angle, the more dominant the male.
