Big noses, chronically flatulent and always horny – meet the Proboscis monkeys

Labuk Bay proboscis monkeysIf you thought that all monkeys are cute and cuddly you may want to think again and take a look at these fellas: bulbous noses, fat bellies, loud, constantly farting and perpetually aroused (but don’t we all know a couple of those guys from home?).

The story of Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary is one of the few positive examples in Borneo where a commercial plantation development was abandoned in favour of an endangered species found nowhere else in the world.

At the end of the day we enjoyed the trip to Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary even more that our visit at the orang-utan sanctuary, because these ugly farting monkeys were so much more fun to watch munching their sugar-free pancakes.
