Ecology and social behaviour Guereza Black-and-white Colobuses inhabit montane and riparian forest, evergreen thickets, and occasionally conifer plantations. They are diurnal and arboreal, spending a significant amount of time in the middle to upper canopies, and seldom come to the ground. Their diet consists mostly of leaves and fruits, but they will also consume seeds, arthropods, bark and soil.

Ecology and social behaviour Occurs in coastal and montane forest, coral rag, thick woodland, degraded woodland, agricultural fields and gardens. Diurnal and insectivorous; they are noisy while foraging in dry leaf-litter – a useful clue to their presence. Distribution in Tanzania Found in parts of the Eastern Arc Mountains and along the northeast coast of Tanzania. Occurs in the Pare, Usambara, Uluguru and Nguu Mountains and in coastal forest and coral rag forest extending from the Kenya border to the Rufiji River.

An upsurge in ivory demand from Asia has led to a significant increase in poaching levels, notably in southern and western Tanzania, and the Tanzanian population is currently declining. Loss of migration corridors between protected areas due to agriculture and the establishment of settlements is another significant threat. indd 39 31/01/2014 14:11 PRIMATES: Primates Chimpanzee Pan troglodytes swahili: Sokwe Mtu Endangered A large, powerfully built ape with black fur, although older individuals are often partially bald and have white hair on their chin and lower back.
