Colobus Monkey

Colobus monkeys have long black fur, a white beard, a conspicuous white mantle extending from the shoulders to the lower back and a large white tuft on the end of their long tail. The thumb is absent or nearly so, and this feature is the source of their name. Did you know that the Greek word "kolobus" means mutilated or stunted, and the monkey bears that name because of its absent thumb?
