These striped caterpillars were devouring this plant
Liliuokalani lizard liliyo
Have to remind myself which bulbul occurs in CI
Some sort of tinker barbet (yes BirdLife treats the african barbets in the toucan family which sort of bugs me)
need to figure this one out
Subspecies P. badius badius. These guys were going crazy with alarm calls because they were being hunted by chimps.
This was really interesting. This poor little mangabey was separated from its mom and troupe and was the only mangabey in a group of guenons and colobus, my guide who has studied mangabey's for 15 years had never seen this.
I could be wrong here, but they were in noisy little groups like the African babblers I've seen, sorry for the bad photo
feasting on this poor little plant

widely sold as escargot in markets, its really bush meat

I was extremely privileged to be able to be the first American to enter the park since the new Disney Chimpanzee movie was released. But because I didn't undergo the required 5 day quarantine before seeing the chimps (to avoid passing them fatal respiratory viruses), I was not permitted to enter the Tai Chimp Project area. We were looking for sooty mangabeys in the Tai Monkey Project area about 4km away from the Chimp Project, and the chimps came in to hunt Red Colobus. This is the same group that was filmed in the movie - can't say how lucky this sighting was and what a privilege it was.
