Primatologist Spartaco Gippoliti confirmed the existence of a second species of the mustache-wearing patas monkey in a study published in Primate Conservation last year. Patas monkeys are fast runners, able to reach a speed of 34 miles per hour, and are native to the Blue Nile basin in western Ethiopia and Sudan.
