Colobus Monkey

Colobus monkeys are found primarily in west and central Africa. They live in primary and secondary forests and wooded grasslands; they are found at higher density logged forests more so than other primary forests.
Lami, a Colobus monkey, is the mother of Dayo, Kumbe and Adanna, all born at the Greenville Zoo
Fun Facts
  • Baby colobus monkeys are born completely white. 
  • Their digestive system is a chambered-ruminant stomach, which allows them to eat leaves other primates cannot.
