Black and white colobus - Africa - Desert

Black-and-white colobus (Colobus abyssinicus)
Colobus monkeys are sociable animals and live in groups in the trees, where they spend most of their time swinging from tree to tree, stopping only to eat and sleep. Dramatic black-and-white markings help these monkeys find and communicate with each other in thick vegetation. They roar, crouch, stare, and display stiff legs to threaten a distant troop.
