Proboscis Monkey

This create draws a strange resemblance to my old uncle Fred but really it is the rare Proboscis monkey. The reddish-brown is an Old World monkey that is native to the island of Borneo in south east Asia. This tree dweling monkey is one of the largest in Asia and can weigh up to 66 lbs. Because of a fragmented population, habitat loss and hunting in some areas this monkey’s population has decreased by 50 % in the last 40 years.
