Proboscis monkey

Monkeying around

October 11, 2009 · 7 comments

After seeing just 3 Orangutans at Sepilok, it became clear I’ve not seen much wildlife since being in Sandakan, despite it being one of the better places in Malaysia to see some. There is another place nearby (15km away or so) called the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary. Which is a Santuary for proboscis monkeys. A primate with a strange nose and different colour fur to most other monkeys. They are also endemic to Borneo Island and can only stay in forest areas near a river so you can’t see them anywhere else in the world apart from a few places on Borneo Island.
