Notes : The Kinabatangan River is one of the world\'s top primate watching sites. This is a male Proboscis Monkey Nasalis larvatus distinguished from the female by his enlarged nose.Proboscis troops are either all male batchelor groups or a harem dominated by one male with several females and their young. To avoid predation by Clouded Leopards Proboscis sleep in groups in trees overhanging the river from where they can easily jump into the river if attacked.
