PROBOSCIS MONKEY © wood engraving (ed. 40) image: 6 x 4 in. $100.00 (go to "Hi There" for purchase information)
The Proboscis Monkey lives in the jungles of Borneo and sports a nose that Jimmy Durante would envy. Interestingly, that nose is what helps him get laid. He uses it to create an echo champer and makes an amplified call that attracts the ladies. Maybe it's true what they say about guys with big noses. The males gather a harem of females and live in an organized group in the canopy of the jungle. They like to swim and will leap from the trees and do spectacular belly flops into the rivers. It's easy to imagine that the sexy flat-top hair-do is for attracting the ladies as well. (Maybe the famous "Rocket Man" got his hair-do for that reason.)
