DeBrazza monkeys got their name from the French explorer Pierre Savorgnan De Brazza.

De Brazza monkeys are also known as swamp monkeys because they live in the wetlands and forests of Africa. They are also very good swimmers and like to live in groups of up to 10 monkeys.

They like to eat fruit, flowers, leaves, insects, worms, small lizards and frogs.

De Brazza monkeys are known for their ability to “freeze,” becoming motionless when they feel threatened and remain motionless up to 8 hours. Natural predators of De Brazza monkeys are leopards, eagles, pythons and humans.
