17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Proboscis Monkey

Only found on the island of Borneo are the proboscis monkeys. These Borneo's indigenous monkeys, or what the locals call the Dutch men, are notable for their long nose (for the males, females have up-turned nose) and pot bellies. The alpha male will have a group of females and their young following him while the other males will be in a "bachelors" group.
