BBC says Primate Watching Officially a Thing (and Russ Mittermeier sees all 80 Genera)

  1. Adrian 3 years ago

    I guess I am still a beginner. 14 wild + humans and uncountable numbers in zoos.

    Well as soon as this ban on travel is over I am off to get myself infected by some jungle species.

    Chimp, Mountain gorilla, Olive Baboon, Chacma Baboon, Vervet Monkey, Blue Monkey, Black and White Colobus, Rhesus Macaque, Black-faced Langur, Brown Spider Monkey, Howler, Squirrel Monkey, Capuchin.

    I am unsure which of the ever changing primate taxonomies is used by Russ and the BBC, but according to my list I have seen 176 species in 61 genera

    My list has 66 genera including Homo (and kipunji probably should be lumped with mangabeys). No idea where number 80 comes from. I’m still missing 6.

    I did a quick count of HBMW and I think they had 78 genera if I counted correctly

    Well, he is the chief editor of the series, so I guess he has to follow their list.

    My list has 97 species in 46 Genius, need to continue the quest !

    I’m at 140 species in 44 genera, so still a long way to go …
