Proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) endemic to Borneo, is nicknamed “monyet belanda” or “Dutchman” by the locals due to its large body size, big round pot bellies and striking colours fur coat. But what makes them famous is the huge long nose and a permanently erect bright red penis seen in mature males. The reason is unknown for this permanent erection but with between 20 to 24 females proboscis in a male’s harem, we guess the alpha male needs to.
