Old World Monkeys - superfamily Cercopithecoidea
« on: September 10, 2016, 07:23:58 PM »
Old World monkeys belong to parvorder Catarrhini (down-nosed), which also includes superfamily Hominoidea, the apes, which are covered in a separate thread. The single family Cercopithecidae is divided into subfamilies Cercopithecinae and Colobinae. Cercopithecinae is the guenons, mangabeys, baboons, and macaques. Colobinae is the leaf-eating monkeys with ruminant stomachs: proboscis, langurs, snub-nosed, and colobus. All of these monkeys are native to Africa or Asia.

The purpose of this thread is to show examples of different species, comparing the size of figures to the Schleich guy. Several species that were once exclusive to Play Visions are now represented by other makers.

Cercopithecinae

Diana monkey, Cercopithecus diana, by CollectA
Black crested mangabey, Lophocebus aterrimus, by Nayab
Mandrill, Mandrillus sphinx, by Play Visions
Guenon, Cercopithecus sp., by Britains
Baboon, Papio sp., by Safari / Monkey Toob


Cercopithecinae / Macaca

Lion-tailed macaque, Macaca silenus, by Chap Mei
Celebes crested macaque, Macaca nigra, by Mojo
Formosan rock macaque, Macaca cyclopis, by Kaiyodo
Japanese macaque, Macaca fuscata, by Nature Techni Colour
Rhesus macaque, Macaca mulatta, by Nayab


Colobinae

Proboscis monkey, Nasalis larvatus, by Mojo
Abyssinian black-and-white colobus, Colobus guereza, by Kaiyodo / Yotsuba
Golden snub-nosed monkey, Rhinopithecus rexellana, by Kaiyodo / Furuta
Southern plains gray langur (pair), Semnopithecus dussumieri, by Bandai

This collection is incomplete. Your photos are invited.
For more images see Toy Animal. Info .

Edit: Corrected that Formosa rock macaque was made by Kaiyodo, not Nayab.

Wonderful new thread, stemturtle! :) I think there are probably more figures around than those representing Platyrrhini. However, I don't have that many which aren't already shown in your photos. But still...


Papio hamadryas (Linnaeus, 1758); Hamadryas Baboon. Furuta ChocoEgg Funny Animals Series 6 model No. 01.




It seems the Mandrill, Mandrillus sphinx (Linnaeus, 1758), is quite overrepresented which is also true in my collection. From top to bottom: Furuta Choco Egg Funny Animals Series 7 model No. 40, Papo, and Schleich Wild Life 2014.

Northern plains gray langur, Semnopithecus entellus, by Play Visions, subfamily: Colobinae

The ID marked on the figure is Langur. This species is difficult to distinguish from the southern plains gray langur, Semnopithecus dussumieri (see the pair by Bandai). We accept the identification posted in ToyAnimal.Info.

It's been a while since last posting. That is how long it took to find this rare figure on eBay. The good news is that they are out there.

Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus (Hausser Elastolin), subfamily Cercopithecinae.
Length about 2.4 in. or 6.1 cm. ID is from Toy Animal Info. Figure is not marked.

The Barbary apes of Gibraltar are the only wild monkeys living in Europe, indigenous to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and Algeria.



The vestigial tail, < 2.2 cm, compared to the tail of a Japanese snow monkey, Macaca fuscata (NTC, Ikimon), which can be 4 times as long, < 9.5 cm.

Rhesus macaque [ID not marked], Macaca mulatta (Nayab), subfamily Cercopithecinae.
This monkey is from a set of 12 assorted wild animals by Nayab, Item No. 199.
The orange color is a bit loud, but the length of the tail looks at least 8 to 9 inches.


Comparision of Rhesus macaque and Japanese macaque [ID not marked], M. fuscata (Nayab).
This Japanese snow monkey has been misidentified as a Rhesus monkey and also as a Barbary ape.
The tail is too short for a Rhesus and too long for a Barbary macaque.
See reply #9 on this thread for a discussion of tail length.

There are at least 21 species of macaques. My IDs are speculative. Your comments are welcome.

Mantled guereza, Colobus guereza (Action Products), subfamily Colobinae.
It is always a great pleasure to find a rare figure like this on eBay. It is part of the Wild Africa Series in 1999.



Comparison with the black-and-white colobus by Kaiyodo.
A white tail lacking a tuft would be typical for the king colobus, C. polykomos,
but other coloration identifies the Action Products figure as C. guereza.
The belly is marked Colobus Monkey.
