The knee tufts are said to be black rather than brown but, in fact, they can vary from light brown to black within a given area.
DISTRIBUTION The southern edge of Ethiopia, east of the Omo River and south and west of the Webi Shebeli River; east of the Rift Valley in Kenya and northern Tanzania; and southern Somalia west of the Webi Shebeli River.
