Description

Found indoors.

Interesting: this poor creature seemed to have got its 2 right front legs/claws tangled with the cotton fabric I placed it on after capture. Struggled to untangle (#1), used its mandrills to fix it (#2), free at last (#3)

:-)

BTW: Placing agile creatures on fibrous material seems to slow them down and are then easier to photograph. Guess you gurus know all this already :-))
