Two types of black-and-white colobus monkeys are found in Kenya, those that inhabit coastal forests and those in inland, high-country areas. Red colobus monkeys are also found in East Africa but are quite rare. Two other types of colobus monkeys in Africa are the black and the olive. The colobus monkey lives in all types of closed forests, including montane and gallery forests. Bamboo stands are also popular dwelling spots for the colobus.
