Red colobus monkeys

Today we drove to the Jozani Forest to see the Red Colobus monkeys.

The Red Colobus Monkey is only found in Zanzibar. It was one of Africa's rarest monkeys, but efforts to protect it and its habitat has meant that the population has grown.

They were rather sweet with their old-man faces.
