National Geographic : 1938 May
THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE © National Geographic Society Painting by Elie Cheverlange TALAPOIN AND MUSTACHE MONKEYS HAVE AN AIR OF PERPETUAL WORRY Their expressions belie their dispositions, for these little African tree dwellers are as carefree as butterflies. Both are guenons (Plates VII and VIII). Smallest member of that numerous family is the TALAPOIN (top pair) with its flaring side whiskers of brilliant yellow. The MUSTACHE (lower) combines the colorful sideburns with a lip adornment which comically fails to match.
