Quiz Question: What unusual facial feature inspired the name of the proboscis monkey?

The given options are as follows:

  • A big nose
  • Big eyes
  • A forked tongue

The correct answer is: A big nose

Fact: The male proboscis monkey has an unusually long nose. A combination of hunting and habitat loss, due to deforestation for oil palm farms, is behind the distinctive primate’s population decline of more than 50 percent in the past 40 years. Wildlife and nature reserves work to provide vital habitat for these primates.
