Proboscis Monkey

Martin Johnson took this photograph of an adult male proboscis monkey in British North Borneo on their second trip to that island. The infant proboscis has a cute little snub nose, but as it ages the nose grows longer in both the male and female. The male nose can be quite spectacular. This image, thought to be Martin Johnson's most circulated photograph, was used by the postal services of four governments between 1939 and 1947.
