The red colobus are Old World monkeys of the genus "Piliocolobus". They were formerly placed in the genus "Procolobus", which now is limited to the Olive Colobus. They are closely related to the black-and-white colobus monkeys (genus "Colobus") and some species are often found in groups with the Blue Monkey. [Ghiglieri, Michael. "East of the Mountains of the Moon: Chimpanzee Society in the African Rain Forest," The Free Press, 1988, pg. 238.] The Western Red Colobus is frequently hunted by the Common Chimpanzee.
