Proboscis Monkey, Indonesia (USNM 196799)
Old World monkeys are primates and are more closely related to humans and apes than any other living nonhuman primate group. The Smithsonian Institution’s Division of Mammals (http://vertebrates.si.edu/mammals/) houses many Old World monkeys in its scientific collections.
This specimen, USNM 196799 (http://collections.mnh.si.edu/search/mammals/?irn=7266476) is a male proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) from the island of Borneo, Indonesia. This individual was collected in 1913 by H. C. Raven near the Birang River.
