Group of Peter's Angola Black and White Colobus from GVI Kenya on Vimeo.
This group of Angola Black and White Colobus, in the wet season, on the edge of a coastal forest in Shimoni, Kenya seem rather nervous. Although used to human presence the groups behaviour might be affected by our presence or possibly the oncoming storm.
At about [00:30] you can see the characteristic coastal Colobus locomotion often described as 'suicidal'. The individual jumps towards what looks like a dense bit of canopy, in a rather undynamic fashion, while stretching arms and legs the vegetation rather then the body breaks the fall, while the individual tries to hold on to whatever vegetation it can.
