This is a great photo, I am surprised to see that it has not gained more votes. The Proboscis Monkey's name has been derived from it's very long nose, easily seen in this photo, but an interesting aspect of the species is that the males have permanent erections, not seen in this photo.

Due to ongoing habitat loss and hunting in some areas, only about 1000 are known to still exist in the wild. In Sarawak, the population of this species has declined from 6500 in 1977 to only 1000 in 2006. The Proboscis Monkey is evaluated as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The Proboscis Monkey is protected by law in all regions of Borneo.
