I have heard one to many times that people refer to Rafiki from the Lion King
as to a Baboon. Well, as much as I respect baboons ¬†, I dont think it would be fair to let them claim Rafiki to their race. That would be like claiming Polar bears comg from Polland. No, my friends RAFIKI IS A MANDRILL. One of the most exquisitley colored ¬†species of primates, the Mandrill’s fur looks as though it rolled around in a rainbow.

Yes, its butt is pink and blue. But do not be fooled by the girly colors- that color scheme is a major object of desire both by females and males in the hordes of Mandrills. Just like the girl in high school with the shiniest hair Рthe most colorful tooshie becomes the alpha male amongst the Mandrills.  Leading through the jungle, the alpha male walks in front of the horde , using its colorful hinny as a flag to follow.
