There are some seven species of monkeys, including two baboons and one colobus.
But his hair contradicts this—being straight as needles, and black as the skin of a colobus monkey.
In Africa, the representatives of this last-mentioned tribe are found in the colobus monkeys.
The first with which we shall deal is colobus, containing the Monkeys known as Guerezas.
Fifty feet down the colobus seized a limb and went skipping away through the branches as lively as ever.
We took about twenty boys into the jungle with us, and as soon as we caught sight of a colobus we chased him madly.
For gaudily marked beasts the colobus were extraordinarily difficult to see.
In Semnopithecus and colobus there are generally seven, but sometimes eight pairs of true ribs.
There are almost always five well-developed digits, but in the genera colobus and Ateles the pollex is vestigial.
