About Proboscis Monkey
The male Proboscis Monkey is a strange looking animal because it has an unusually large nose and a pink face. Its big nose normally hangs down, but when the monkey calls, its nose will straighten out. Only the older males have this large nose. The young males and females have a small, upturned nose. The proboscis monkeys live in swampy areas filled with mangrove trees. They spend a lot of time climbing through the mangroves. To avoid danger or to get to food, they will swim across deep water. They are excellent simmwers.
