Appearance[change | change source]
The proboscis mae monkey is known for its very unique, large floppy nose, and the name is taken from the nose, as well. Females have a smaller pointed nose. Another peculiar fact is that a baby proboscis, with its dark blue face and black furs, looks very different from its parents. As it gets older, its fur changes to the orange color of its parents.
