Kikuyu Mantled Guereza

Kikuyu Mantled Guereza In the wild, the Kikuyu mantled guereza lives in the damp, subtropical forests of Central Africa. The animals
communicate with one another by using a variety of sounds, most notably the hearty roar of the male. Even though they sleep at night, they spend the additional half of the day resting and digesting leaves, which form the base of their diet. Guerezas are very gentle monkeys and look the part, always keeping their exceptionally long hair in impeccable shape.

  • Latin name: Colobus guereza kikuyuensis
