Angolan Colobus of Africa

These black and white monkeys live in dense rain forests of African Congo River Basin and in eastern Africa in the coastal forests in Kenya and Tanzania. This species eats primarily leaves (and some fruit and flowers). Unlike other monkeys, this species does not have thumbs, an adaptation that enables them to be more efficient at climbing tree branches in the forest canopy. As with other species of wildlife, Colobus monkeys are threatened by habitat destruction and hunting.

  1. It is a shame when friendly, non-dangerous animals become the object of hunters. We have to take care of people first but next, innocent animals need protection. Beautiful photographs of these charmers. 🙂


  2. I couldn’t agree with you more!
