Lonesome Abyssianian Colobus

Lonesome Abyssianian Colobus (Animals)

colobus are born completely white. Colobus are herbivorous, eating leaves, fruit, flowers, and twigs. The habitat of a colobus includes primary and secondary forest, riverine forest, and wooded grasslands; they are found at higher density logged forests more so than other primary forests. Their ruminant-like digestive systems have enabled these leaf-eaters to occupy niches that are inaccessible to other primates. Colobus live in territorial groups of approximately 9 individuals, based upon a single male with a number of females and their offspring. There are documented cases of "allo" mothering, which means members of the troop other than the infant's biological mother care for it.

Colobus are important for seed dispersal through their sloppy eating habits as well as through their digestive system. In addition, they are prey for many forest predators. Colobus struggle from the bushmeat trade, logging, and habitat destruction. In Africa, forest is often referred to as "the bush," thus wildlife and the meat derived from it is referred to as "bushmeat." This term applies to all wildlife species, including threatened and endangered, used for meat.

There are five species of this monkey, with at least eight subspecies:
