Lady Ross's turaco (Musophaga rossae) is named after Lady Eliza Solomon Ross, second wife of Major General Sir Patrick Ross, the Governor of St. Helena 1846-1850. This bird has three toes on each foot that point forward, while the fourth toe can be rotated forward or backwards (semi-zygodactylous). Males and females differ in that females may have a greenish beak. Their long tails are well adapted for balancing on branches and their feet have excellent grip. Mostly found in woodlands, open forest and riparian habitats in central Africa, they rapidly run along vines and branches squirrel-style.
