Female red colobus monkey in the first shot. Female carrying young in the second shot, then more individuals from the same group and a male in the last shot.
This wonderfully expressive female red colobus was photographed at the border of the Jozani National Park in Zanzibar, and was part of a group of one male with several females and youngsters. Colobus are unique in their lack of an opposable thumb compared to other primates. An endangered species edemic to the island of Zanzibar, the red colobus is now the target of major protection efforts.
