These large monkeys have a black face surrounded by short white fur, a black body and a U-shape of long white hair that hangs like a cape from the shoulders and back. They also have a long black and white tail.
Black and white colobus monkeys are found in forests in central Africa, from Nigeria to Uganda.
They live in family groups of up to 20 animals; these usually have one male, several females and their young. Black and white colobus monkeys usually have one baby at a time and they are covered in white fur when born.
