The Fire Mandrill fiercely defend their territory against all intruders. Released from captivity by SLDF scientists after the colonization of Eden began. Probably due to their small size (~100cm long and ~95cm tall), the mandrill typically live in family groups of 15-50. This larger pack of animals provides enough flexibility to face off against the other inhabitants of the equatorial jungles where the mandrills live. Though particularly fierce when defending its territory or young, troops of mandrills typically avoid human settlements.
