The drill is a primate and member of the Old-world monkey family. It is most closely related to the mandrill and also related to the baboon. It is similar in appearance to the mandrill, but its face is black, rather than multi colored. Its rump is rainbow colored.

It is a large African monkey living only in Nigeria, Cameroon, and the island of Bioko. It is a forest-dwelling species, which generally lives on the ground (the lighter females are found in trees more often than the heavier males). Two species exist.

Male drills are the size of small people. They can be up to 3 feet tall and weigh 80-110 lbs. Female drills normally weigh around 30-45 pounds. The males have canine teeth to rival those of lions and tigers. They can be 2 inches long. They make faces and display their teeth.

They are one of the world's most endangered species.
