Schalow's turaco (Tauraco schalowi), named after German ornithologist Herman Schalow, have, on average, the longest crest of any turaco species. It occurs in the forested uplands and wooded inland plateaus of south central Africa. It is replaced in the eastern lowlands by Livingstone's turaco, which is comparable in appearance and behaviour. At 80-120mm in length, it is relativity the longest of the entire Turaco family. The white tipped crest is useful for instant species identification.
