Schalow’s Turaco (Tauraco schalowi)
…a species of turaco that occurs from southwest Kenya, to Angola and Zimbabwe. Like other forest turacos, Schalow’s turaco is arboreal and lives most of its live in the trees. They feed almost exclusively on fruit, however young are also fed small invertebrates. Shcalow’s turacos are poor fliers and instead use their climbing abilities to move from tree to tree. However, if need be they can fly for short distances. Although Shcalow’s turacos usually feed in small groups, breeding is a private matter. And pairs will claim and fiercely defend territories.
