Artist's Description

Also known as the "Proboscis Monkey". Taken this shot from the Singapore Zoo.

The big nose is thought to be used to attract females and is a characteristic of the males.Besides attracting mates, the nose serves as a resonating chamber, amplifying their warning calls. When the animal becomes agitated its nose swells with blood, making warning calls louder and more intense. (From Wikipedia)
