The Proboscis Monkey is exclusively native to the jungles of Borneo, never staying far from the island's rivers, coastal mangroves, and swamps. They are highly arboreal species and will venture onto land only occasionally to search for food. They live in organized harem groups consisting of a dominant male and two to seven females and their offspring.
