Location: Kinabatangan, Sabah
Description: Endemic to Borneo, the Proboscis Monkey has to be one of the most unique looking primates found on this island. Adult males of this species possess a nose so large, it hangs lower than its mouth. Being predominantly arboreal, the monkeys living in lowland coastal rainforests are most often found high up on trees feeding on leaves while the ones found near mangroves and estuaries are often seen foraging on mudflats at low tide.
