Proboscis Monkey

Due to its very large nose, especially of the male, the Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis larvatus) is very much unlike any other monkey. It is endangered and found only in the Borneo region, mainly in the Brunei Bay, and along the Kinabatangan River in Sabah. The monkey lives in groups of about 15, but can move from one group to another. Due to hunting, logging and human activity, the monkey's population is being rapidly reduced.
