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. Click the photo above to see seven enlargements including juveniles.
