Rare Albino Vervet Monkey in Timbavati Game Reserve


Written by: Christy Strever

I was driving through the Timbavati Game Reserve when I came across a group of vervet monkeys playing in the road. The next thing this little white bombshell dives out from the bushes and tackles another baby vervet the same age.

The group completely accepted the albino monkey and they were all playing for ages. The albino was a little more shy than the other vervet monkeys and stayed near the grass or in the tree. It was a very special and unique sighting… reminded me of a miniature abominable snowman.
