Colobus monkeys are adapted for a life in the trees. They are great leapers, able to cover more than 30 feet at a time to get from tree to tree. Having no thumbs, an oddity among primates, allows them to shape their fingers into a swinging hook.

Angolan colobus monkeys can consume leaves too toxic for other species due to an enzyme in their multi-chambered stomach that facilitates digestion.
