Sunda Shelf mangroves

WWF Abstract

Along the coastline and within the river deltas of Borneo and eastern Sumatra, you might glimpse a quick-moving, cinnamon-colored animal leaping from branch to branch or swimming across a narrow span of water. You would have to look fast, because this animal would soon be hidden again in the mangroves. If you did happen to see it, the first thing you would notice on a male would be the animal’s immense nose, for which it is named. It is the proboscis monkey.
