Amid the lush rainforest in Gabon, Africa, live rare monkeys with unforgettable faces. The male mandrill boasts magnificent blue cheeks with a bright red stripe down its nose, a trait used to establish hierarchy. With help from researchers, the episode captures the struggle to unseat an older alpha male, where the females play a decisive role.
