Proboscis monkey

The proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) is endemic to the island of Borneo, where it is found predominantly in coastal areas, near rivers and in swamp forests. It is perhaps the most aquatic of the primates and is a fairly good swimmer, capable of swimming underwater; apart from this, it is largely arboreal. This photograph is a composite of three images and shows a proboscis monkey jumping between trees in Labuk Bay in the Malaysian state of Sabah.
