Distribution in Tanzania The Southern Tree Hyrax occurs in riverine habitat and lowland forests throughout Tanzania. The Eastern Tree Hyrax occurs in many montane forests, including Arusha and Kilimanjaro NPs, the Pare Mountains and most of the Eastern Arc Mountains. It is also found on the northeast coast and on Zanzibar and Pemba, but not Mafia. The Western Tree Hyrax is only known from the Minziro FR.

There is an estimated population of roughly 1,000 individuals in the Magombera Forest in the Kilombero Valley, the high population density being due to habitat loss elsewhere. This species is vulnerable to hunting, with dogs being used to isolate the monkeys in trees, where they are then easily shot. indd 48 31/01/2014 14:12 Udzungwa Red Colobus may be similarly threatened.
