The proboscis monkey is best known for its sizable schnoz. Reaching up to 7 inches in length, the nose of the pot-bellied monkey is used by the males to attract a mate, thanks to its unusual appearance. Chambers in the nose are also used to amplify the primate’s warning call. Due to habitat loss, the proboscis monkey is currently an endangered species.

What are you talking about?

Change your perspective. Change your experience. To me it says if we think differently, different things will.
