Woah, check out that massive nose! This ugly nose can grow to up to 3.0 in (10 cm) long! Does the proboscis monkey need it to smell better? Like tasty fruit from miles away? Nope. The proboscis can’t smell any better than other primate . This nose is all about impressing the ladies. They find a big nose especially cute.
