This box consultant covers all of the greater mammals of Tanzania, together with marine mammals and a few newly chanced on species. particular bills are supplied for greater than a hundred thirty five species, in addition to colour pictures, colour illustrations of marine mammals, and distribution maps. debts for land species supply info on identity, subspecies, comparable species, ecology, habit, distribution, conservation prestige, and the place most sensible to determine each one species. The advisor additionally positive factors plates with side-by-side photographic comparisons of species which are simply harassed, in addition to first-time-ever species checklists for each nationwide park.

Example text

The population of Western Tree Hyrax is restricted to one small corner of Tanzania and thus is likely to be small. All three species are hunted for their meat, and populations are declining. indd 37 31/01/2014 14:11 ELEPHANT: Proboscidea Savanna Elephant Loxodonta africana swahili: Tembo, Ndovu Vulnerable The largest living land mammal, Savanna Elephants have huge bodies, a long, highly mobile trunk, and large ears. Their bodies are grey, with little hair, and the tail is long with a black tassel at the tip.

Diurnal and insectivorous; they are noisy while foraging in dry leaf-litter – a useful clue to their presence. Distribution in Tanzania Found in parts of the Eastern Arc Mountains and along the northeast coast of Tanzania. Occurs in the Pare, Usambara, Uluguru and Nguu Mountains and in coastal forest and coral rag forest extending from the Kenya border to the Rufiji River. Also in northern Selous GR and Saadani NP. Present throughout the islands of Mafia and Zanzibar, but absent from Pemba. Population size and conservation status Studies of nesting sites in six Eastern Arc Forests have shown that densities range from 19 individuals per km2 (50 per mi2) in Chome Forest Reserve (Usambara Mountains) to 79 individuals per km2 (200 per mi2) in Pugu Forest Reserve.

Matschiei: Serengeti ecosystem. Similar species Separated by range from the similar Angola Black-and-white Colobus (page 42). Ecology and social behaviour Guereza Black-and-white Colobuses inhabit montane and riparian forest, evergreen thickets, and occasionally conifer plantations. They are diurnal and arboreal, spending a significant amount of time in the middle to upper canopies, and seldom come to the ground. Their diet consists mostly of leaves and fruits, but they will also consume seeds, arthropods, bark and soil.
