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. This species typically lives in small groups of 6–10 individuals, with a single male and several females and their young.
The tail is long and bushy and mostly white with a black base. The chin, cheeks, and a narrow strip across the forehead are white, and the face and top of the head are black. Individuals living at higher altitudes typically have longer and thicker fur. Subspecies C. g. caudatus: Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. C. g. matschiei: Serengeti ecosystem. Similar species Separated by range from the similar Angola Black-and-white Colobus (page 42). Ecology and social behaviour Guereza Black-and-white Colobuses inhabit montane and riparian forest, evergreen thickets, and occasionally conifer plantations.
Zanzibaricus: Zanzibar and Mafia islands. Similar species The Chequered Elephant-shrew (page 28) and Black-and-rufous Elephant-shrew (page 29) are both much larger. The Rufous Elephantshrew Elephantulus rufescens and the Shortsnouted Elephant-shrew E. brachyrhynchus are much smaller and have shorter legs; these two species are both very small and are not covered in this field guide. Ecology and social behaviour Found in coastal forest, miombo woodland, and thicket, where they create a wide network of narrow trails that they keep free of leaf-litter.
