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 !! ;)

Looks liks a hybrid between an Asilid and a monkey!

:D:D You're totally right !! ;)
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 ! B)
