The Proboscis Monkey

One of the most endangered creatures in the world and perhaps the most sought-after primate in Brunei’s wilderness, the Proboscis Monkey is a traveler’s favourite. Native to the island of Borneo, the animal thrives in the tidal lowlands – particularly in the mangroves and swamp forests. With luck, the monkey can often be found munching on fruits and leaves by the river on the way to Ulu Temburong National Park. Many people find the monkey’s odd, bulbous nose to be unattractive, but it is actually used to attract and impress other female Proboscis Monkeys. What a fellow.
