A Uganda's bird watcher and guide took this picture recently in Uganda ...

It reminds me some Asilus or at least Asilidae ...

Is it possible to Id this hairy one ?

Thanks in advance !! Wink

GrinGrin You're totally right !! Wink

There's a species of monkey called "mantled guereza (Colobus guereza), also known simply as the guereza, the eastern black-and-white colobus, or the Abyssinian black-and-white colobus" that I saw in Uganda and Ethiopia !!

Quite the same ... A little bit bigger ! Cool
