De Brazza's Monkey KF3

De Brazza's Monkey is a type of monkey Friend that first appeared in Kemono Friends 3.


De Brazza's Monkey sports long green-grey hair with flayed orange bangs, at the tips of which a lighter green-grey is visible, and a black strip across the top of her head featuring pointed tufts under which her green-grey-furred monkey ears are found. Her eyes are burnt orange in colour, and she has a long black monkey tail with green-grey fur at its base.

Her primary outfit is a green-grey tracksuit; the top has rolled-up sleeves, revealing tight black fingerless gloves which run at least up the length of her forearm, and is accented with a furry white necktie evoking the white facial fur of the De Brazza's monkey. The tracksuit pants feature a vertical white stripe running down the sides. On her feet she wears bluish-black sandals featuring heel supports and small orange decorations- possibly buttons- pairing these sandals with black socks.

In Real Life

De Brazza's monkey is an Old World monkey native to sub-Saharan Africa. With males weighing in at around 7 kilograms, De Brazza's are the largest monkey species of the genus Cercopithecus, commonly known as the guenons. The primary fur colour of these monkeys is a greenish-grey, which could also be referred to as agouti- the display of two or more bands of pigmentation on each hair- while the back is a rusty colour, and the limbs and tail are black. What most distinguishes them not only from other guenons, but so too from other monkeys, are the eye-catching orange crescents upon their foreheads, their characteristic white muzzles and beards- which can be said to evoke an old human's facial hair- and the white stripes along their thighs.

De Brazza's monkey has a reputation for its cryptic nature; as is true of many arboreal primates, it is very adept at hiding, and is tough to find if it does not wish to be found. This makes research of the animal difficult, as a lack of data makes it hard to estimate the populations and conservation needs of the species. Though it sits on the IUCN Red List at the position of Least Concern status, it uniquely has a species survival plan in place courtesy of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums- something usually reserved for animals known to be threatened, but for which the elusive De Brazza's monkey has been given an exception due in part to the projected difficulty of quickly responding to declines in its population, should they occur.

  • When they are observed, troops of De Brazza's monkeys are almost always found near water; they seem not to stray too far from nearby tributaries.
  • Although most guenons tolerate the company of other monkey species, De Brazza's monkeys are known to be quite the opposite; they only tend to tolerate certain species which do not compete with them for resources, whilst displaying open hostility towards species which do.
