Colobus monkeys are very gentle and friendly monkeys. Comparing them to Sykes, you have the Sykes that are extremely opportunistic and the Colobus that can live peacefully without stealing or marauding. The Colobus monkeys are herbivorous, eating leaves, fruit, flowers, and twigs and normally lives in large families. The Colobus monkey has a beautiful long haired black and white coat, although newborn Colobuses are completely white.
