A proboscis monkey, called bekantan in Malay. I kept trying to get a clear photo of his long nose, but as you can see he was bashful. Photo taken from the Kinabatangan River.

They do look very different from others.
Yes they are. It was fun watching them, but so hard to get a photo. They kept jumping around in the trees.
He looks like he has been eating well. Were you allowed to feed them?
Nope. These live in the wild. I wonder what they eat.
Lovely capture.. His Pinocchio snout must have earned him that name 🙂
and his is smaller than the lead male.
Beautiful creature. Nature is amazing!
Isn’t he cool. I love seeing the variety in nature. His oddness makes him stunning.
maybe he was just self conscious…..great shot but they always are
Maybe he was also tired of having so many little boxes..some with blinding light flashes…pointed at him.
Cool shot and what a neat experience to see one of these!
It would be annoying to have so many humans snapping pictures.
a handsome “monkey” 😀
