The three photos of netted scaly francolins were taken in the Udzungwa Mountains ( 6-07), courtesy of Dr. Louis Hansen, who noted: "sexes alike (main difference is the length of the spurs; the images are of a male); age: adult." All of the other photos above were taken in Arusha NP (10-07). Click the photo above to see several enlargements including immatures.
