Animal Fact – Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis larvatus)
IUCN Red List Classification – Endangered (decreasing)
The Proboscis monkey is known as monyet belanda in Malaysia or bekantan in Indonesia. Proboscis monkeys grow a pot belly due to their diet of low-quality leaves. In order to get enough energy, they have to eat large amounts of these leaves, which enlarge their stomachs. The massive noses of male individuals help them produce loud bellowing sounds, which serve as alarm signals as well as help to attract females. Due to the large size and almost entirely tree-dwelling lifestyle of the Proboscis Monkey, they have very few actual predators in their natural environment, with the exception of Clouded Leopards that hunt the Proboscis Monkey when it is forced to be on the ground. They are also preyed upon by Crocodiles whilst in the water, but Humans are the biggest threat to this unique animal.
