Swapo Swapo is the current dominant male of the Sykes monkey troop I’ve monitored since 2006. The former dominant male Putin, was replaced by Swapo in 2010. Swapo’s group consists of himself, his kids, and several adult females. The males usually spend their time foraging somewhat apart from the rest of the group, with the exception of mating and territorial encounters. Swapo’s group, or K group as we call it, is habituated to people so the monkeys are used to people following them at a distance. On this particular day Swapo let me get unusually close to photograph him.
