Akpugoeze Monkeys

Through out most of Nigeria, monkeys and other wild animals are hunted by people. this makes them very shy and difficult to see in their natural homes. but is not like that in Akpugoeze, due to tradition and culture, however, the people of Umuokpasialm and Amagu villages in Akpugoeze do not harm, kill or eat monkeys. This particular species that inhabits Akpugoeze is called Sclater's monkey(scientific name is Cercopithecus sclateri). this rare species is special because it is found only in southeastern Nigeria----and nowhere else in the entire world...... why not take a trip with us to Akpugoeze to see it for your self...... what a beautiful monkey
