The Colobus angolensis has black fur and a black face, surrounded by long, white locks of hair.

It also has a mantle of white hair on the shoulders. The long, thin tail can be either black or white, but the tip is always white. There is a significant regional variation in the total amount of white on the body and the length of the fur.

Animals that live in the mountains have longer, thicker fur than animals from the lowlands to protect them against the cold.

The Colobus angolensis has a head-body length of 50 to 70 cm, with the males usually being larger than females. The tail is about 75 cm long, and the body weight varies between 9 and 20 kg.

The Colobus angolensis occurs in dense rainforests, both in the lowlands and coastal mountains. It lives in most of the Congo Basin, to the south and northeast of the Congo River, as far as Ruwenzori, Burundi and southwestern Uganda.

The species can also be found in East Africa, especially in the interior and coastal forests of Kenya and Tanzania and in isolated mountain areas. Although the species is named after Angola, it is quite rare in that country.

Of all Colobus species occurs in the southernmost latitudes. The geographical range lies south of that of the mantled guereza. It is found up to 2,415 m above sea level in Kenya.

All Colobus species are very sociable and live in groups of up to several hundred animals, although most groups are much smaller. Their diet consists of mostly leaves, but also lesser amounts of fruit and seeds.

More than any other African monkey, the Colobus angolensis, also called the Angolan Black-and-White Colobus, is exceptionally adapted to a life lived almost exclusively in the tree canopy.

A leaf-loving primate with a body built for tree-hopping acrobatics, this Old World monkey thrives in a variety of forest types, including lowland, bamboo, coastal, gallery, and montane forests.

As with other Colobus monkeys, Colobus angolensis has an opposable toe and a reduced thumb; their curved narrow fingers form a single flexible hook, an adaptation that helps them more easily navigate branches in the canopy.

All colobuses also share flattened nails, hind legs that are longer than the forelimbs, and prominent pads on the buttocks.

Colobus angolensis is a vulnerable species which has been categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as being threatened with extinction unless the circumstances that are threatening its survival and reproduction improve.
