The diet of cercocebus albigena albigena in northeast gabon


Terre et la Vie 31(4): 579-586
The diet of cercocebus albigena albigena in northeast gabon
Eighteen stomach contents of Cercocebus albigena albigena were studied. Mangabeys are primarily fruit eaters (83%); leaves and flowers are eaten in small quantities and not always present in the stomach contents. Ants are the major animal prey eaten and are found in all the stomachs. There are no strong seasonal variations in the diet, but leaves and flowers are only eaten abundantly during some months of the year. During the main dry season, arils of Myristicaceae make up 40% of the diet.
