Scientists are claiming they have discovered a new species of monkey living in the remote forests of the Democratic Republic of #Congo. They describe the new species that they call Cercopithecus Lomamiensis, known locally as the Lesula, whose home is deep in central DR Congo's Lomami forest basin. The scientists say it is only the second discovery of a monkey species in 28 years.
