Vervet Monkey

We saw lots of these Vervet Monkeys on safari in Kruger National Park.  They travel in group from 10 to up to 70 monkeys at a time.  The juvenile members were so cute.  They would run, play, pick on each other… 

Here’s an interesting fact…. The males have blue testicles (blue balls..... see the photos below).  Apparently, the dominant male within the group has the vibrant color.  Why???  I don’t know.  That’s just what our guide said and as you can see below, they are definitely a robin egg blue color.  Note, I didn’t modify the photo.
