By Owen Weldon     Sep 13, 2012 in World
A new species of monkey has been discovered according to claims made by scientists. The monkey lives in remote forests located in Congo.
The monkey is already known among local hunters, but until now they have not been known to the outside world.
According to CNN, scientists call the new species of monkey Cercopithecus Lomamiensis. The monkey's habitat is in the Lomami forest basin.
According to BBC, scientists first made contact with the monkey, caged by a primary school director, back in the town of Opala.
The scientists decided to investigate a bit more, and that is when they found more captive monkeys.
According to Fox, the monkey has eyes that are large and they are almost like the eyes of humans. The monkey also has a golden mane as well as a pink face.
The new monkey's range covers around 6,000 miles between the Tshuapa River and the Lomani River. That area has been one of forest blocks that has not been explored, biologically, that much until recently.
