From long noses to short ones! The Snub-Nosed Monkey certainly has a beautiful and #uniquenose but no one is quite sure why it has developed like this, other than for breathing. One thing we do know is that this poor chap found in China and Vietnam is not a fan of rainfall, and sneezes a lot when it rains. The upturned nose that faces forward gets filled with water, resulting in a plethora of sneezes. This is bad news for them, as it makes them really easy to hunt on rainy days. Perhaps explaining why they are endangered.

The Proboscis Monkey has a very remarkable looking nose! And are next up in our nose theme. The noses of male monkeys nearly reach up to seven inches, and at times hangs down over its mouth and has to be pushed aside to eat food. It is also used to attract the females for mating. Scientists think these outsize organs create an echo chamber that amplifies the monkey’s call, impressing females and intimidating rival males.

Tarsiers have #incredibleeyes and win the prize for largest eyes in relation to body mass. They are truly enormous in proportion to the rest of the body, typically 1.5 centimetres in diameter while the entire tarsier is only 12 centimetres long. Each eye is as big as the animal’s brain, and rivals the eyes of orang-utans for size. These furry long-limbed primates from SE Asia are nocturnal and mostly hunt insects while foraging in the forest canopy. As their eyes are so big, it has required the tarsier to adapt in such a way as to be able to hold their weighty head completely still while waiting for a bug to stroll on by.

This is exciting! Our dapper next entry in our #moustachemaestro has only just been discovered (or technically newly described) in East Africa - only yesterday. The new species was identified when researchers realized that the wide-ranging patas monkey is not one, but two species. Now known as the Blue Nile patas monkey (Erythrocebus poliophaeus), and described in Primate Conservation, the animal has an impressive handlebar tash that would not look out of place on a leather-clad biker. A largely terrestrial species found in the grasslands and swamps of Africa, the monkeys can pick up some impressive speed, able to clock 55 kilometers (34 miles) per hour, making them the fastest ground-dwelling monkey in the world. His mustache IS very impressive!

This stylish chap with striking facial hair is an Emperor Tamarin, found in the Amazon Rainforest, ranging from Peru in the west to Brazil in the east. How did a squirrel-sized monkey like the Emperor Tamarin end up with such a big name? It’s all in the moustache! Emperor Tamarins are said to have been named after the German emperor Wilhelm II, who was famous for his large, distinctive moustache. Truly a #moustachemaestro And as you can see from the photo, even the baby Tamarins develop their facial hair early!

Meet the rarest great ape - the Tapanuli orangutan - a #newspecies discovered in 2017. The great apes are a pretty exclusive family, including humans and only a handful of gorilla, chimp and orangutan species alive today. So it’s a pretty big deal to welcome a new member into the family for the first time in almost a century. And what a handsome thing he is! Hailing from northwestern Sumatra, a small population was originally discovered in 1997, but has only now been recognized as a distinct species. Researchers reached that conclusion by way of genetic studies, skull morphology, and observations in the wild of behavior, calls and diet. Unfortunately, with only 800 individuals left the Tapanuli orangutan was fast-tracked to the Critically Endangered list.

Move over Ewoks and say #nicetomeetyou to the Skywalker Hoolock Gibbon, a new species identified last year. Found in the tropical forests of West China, scientists had been studying the primate for some time, but new research revealed it is in fact a different species. The research team, led by Fan Peng-Fei from Sun Yat-sen University in China, first suspected that the gibbons they were studying in Gaoligongshan nature reserve in Yunnan province might be different because of subtle differences in the typical facial markings of white eyebrows and beards, and because of its unusual calls. As you might have guessed from the name, the scientists are Star Wars fans (hence Skywalker) but the name is also a nod to the fact that the Chinese characters of its scientific name, Hoolock tianxing, mean “Heaven’s movement” - a great name for a treetop master like the Gibbon. Sadly, the Skywalker Hoolock is already going to be classified as endangered due to logging and habitat loss, as well as fragmentation. Let’s hope the force (or at least some protection) is with them in 2018!

When it comes to power struggles in the animal kingdom, few are noisier or rowdier than those of Chimpanzees and bonobos. They are humans’ closest biological relatives, sharing roughly 98 percent of our genome, so it makes sense that we’d share a few behavioral traits. And while there aren’t formal elections in chimp society, no alpha male can rule for long without support from a key voting bloc: females. “The male has to be accepted by the females before he can gain his status,” according to the Institute for the Study of Human-Animal Relationships. “Females can be very choosy, and if the females do not approve of the alpha male they will not let him mate with them.” After that happens, he may soon be overthrown by a rival male. Power is literally in the paws of the group!

Baboons live in an #animaldemocracy with members seeming to collaborate over troop decisions! (This one in the photo clearly votes with her tongue 😂) They are monkeys, not apes, but their governing styles still bear some similarities to chimpanzees. Much like in chimp society — where an alpha male is often kept in check by female consensus — dominant male baboons aren’t quite dictators. According to primatologists James Else and Phyllis Lee, yellow baboons’ group decisions about troop movement may be influenced by any adult, but high-ranking males and females seem to have the final say. “All adult animals were observed to display orientation and appeared to influence troop choice through it,” Else and Lee report in “Primate Ecology and Conservation,” adding that “the agreement of the two most influential females and often of the adult male was necessary for other individuals’ suggestions to influence group decisions.” Fascinating!

As the largest and arguably most intelligent of all tree-dwelling animals, the orangutan is widely considered the king of the trees #treetopmaster . Orangutans spend nearly all their time in the forest canopy where they feed, sleep, breed and raise their young. The females even give birth in a treetop nest, and their tiny infants cling to them as they swing through the trees in search of food. An orangutan’s long arms can reach a length of 7 feet, and their powerful, hand-like feet allow them to grasp branches tightly as they swing their massive bodies from branch to branch. Their limbs are also extremely flexible and their wrist, hip and shoulder joints are capable of greater range of motion than other apes. This gives them a grace, agility and speed that are unmatched among tree-dwelling animals. They really are meant to live in the canopies, which is why cutting down their forest homes is such a problem for these gentle primats( Fact credit @care2 / 📷 @wrs.ig @visualindulgence ) #orangutan #orangutans #orangutanfacts #primates #primatefacts #treetopmasters #arboreal #arborealanimals #indonesianwildlife #malaysiawildlife #animalfacts #animalfactsforstevo

Spider Monkeys are next up in our #treetopmasters theme. They really are the aerial acrobats of the tree canopy, flying through the forest using their long arms and strong prehensile tails. These tails are really good - it can hook around a tree branch and are strong enough to support a mother and her offspring. Spider Monkeys can let go with their arms and hang by their tail as they play and wrestle with each other high up in the tropical forest canopy. Baby spider monkeys also wrap their tiny tail around their mother’s tail for security as they ride around on her back. And it’s this dangling by the tail that leads to their names. And that’s not all - their tail even lacks hair on the underside so that the monkey can get a better grip on a branch while using both hands to gather fruit. Their bodies are also well-adapted as forest acrobats: spider monkeys are slim and their hands act as hooks that can pull a fruit-covered branch within biting distance. They occur in forests throughout South America and as far north as southern Mexico.

Meet the very stylish Eastern Black and White Colobus Monkey, found chilling out and looking great all over the top and East of Africa - from Nigeria to Ethiopia down to Kenya and Tanzania. It’s clear why they feature on our #blackandwhite animal theme! This species of Colobus have a U-shaped mantle of long white fur that descends from it’s shoulders and around its’ back. They have white fur surrounding their face and a long white tail. They are the only Old World monkey to have a reduced thumb. The name, Colobus, actually means “mutilated one” referring to their lack of thumbs. Colobus are great leapers often taking dives of 20-30 feet through the canopy and the lack of thumbs gives their hands a “hook-like” shape which enables them to move gracefully through the trees. They can run up to 30 miles an hour and use their powerful legs to kick or bounce off objects and opponents. They have a specialized gut that allows them to breakdown cellulose from leaves, similar to a cow (fact credit @hoglezoo / 📷 @animalslife74 ) #easternblackandwhitecolobusmonkey #blackandwhitecolobus #colobusmonkey #primate #primatefacts #primates #blackandwhiteanimals #animalfacts #animalfactsforstevo #africa #africananimals #africanwildlife

Ring Tailed Lemurs. The Madagascar native who is next up on our #greyanimal list. Their remarkable stripy tails are longer than they are (usually averaging 22 inches in length) and used for balance and communication. And in Ring Tailed Lemur life, it’s tail is used for fighting, and things get pretty stinky. Male ring-tailed lemurs have scent glands at the wrists and shoulders, and using their long tails, waft scents into the air for intimidation. When a stink fight begins, two rival males pull their tails through these glands so the fur absorbs the smell. (They also mix scents to make richer, more persistent fragrances.) Then they wave their tails at each other, throwing pungency instead of punches. Stink fights are resolved when one lemur backs off, and although many end quickly, they’ve been known to last an hour. They take place any time of year, not just breeding season, and aren’t necessarily limited to lemurs. Humans’ sense of smell isn’t strong enough to detect the odors, but ring-tailed lemurs don’t know that, so they sometimes try to stink fight zookeepers or other people who irritate them.

It’s one of our favourite days in the year - #WorldOrangutanDay - that helps raise awareness for these gentle primates. Here are some great facts about them: orangutans are solitary, unlike the other great apes and primates who are very socially active. Researchers theorize this is to allow each orang to get enough food that can be widespread in the forest. Orangutans will travel anywhere between 50-1000m in a day searching for fruit, nuts, leaves and insects. They do spend some time on the ground, but the majority is spent up in the canopy. Bornean Orangutans are known to spend more time on the ground than their Sumatran cousins. One theory for this difference is because they have not grown up around Sumatran Tigers so have less reason to fear the floor (but now humans are making sure they have something to be scared of). Other favourite facts - they can whistle and giggle when tickled! They are truly wonderful creatures and worth protecting them from habit destruction - not least because they are a keystone species, which means orangutans disperse fruit seeds other species in the ecosystem depend on for survival. If they go extinct, the unique ecosystem would change dramatically.

Meet the Brown Woolly Monkey. Found in large troops of up to 50 animals in the mountain forests, rain forests, and humid tropical forests of South America like Bolivia, Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Peru. Easily identifiable thanks to two things - their round heads and by having a short, thick hairy coat. You would think that it would be ridiculous for a monkey living in the heat and humidity of the jungle to have a thick fur coat, but this coat actually protects them against the sun, rain and insect stings high up in the jungle canopy. And as you can tell by this photo, it helps them to blend in the shade really well. Spending most of their time in the trees, they have strong thumbs and toes, and a big, thick, strong prehensile tail that allows them to move on all fours and swing hand over hand with ease agility and ease, (although they are not as graceful as say, spider monkeys, and are more likely to take the occasional tumble). They are advanced communicators and have a fairly complex system that includes vocalization, olfactory sensing (communicating via scent), visual signals, and tactile sensing (communicating through touch). They use this system to communicate everything from affection, to territorial dominance. These charming creatures are vulnerable to extinction thanks to habit loss and hunting (fact credit @mongabay / 📷 @suarezjess @tropical_conservation_fund ) #Lagothrix #woollymonkey #woollymonkeys #brownwoollymonkey #woollymonkeyfacts #monkey #monkeyfacts #primate #primates #primatefacts #southamerica #southamericawildlife #brazil #brown #brownanimal #animalfacts #animalfactsforstevo

Orangutans are another iconic carrot-topped animal and a favourite of ours at Animals for StevO. But why are Orangutans orange when the other great apes are dark? It seems Scientists just don’t know. Orangutans ‘blaze’ in the sunlight but virtually disappear when they move into shadow. In the shade of the canopy, their tan skin absorbs the light so you don’t see the sparse hair but the dark skin underneath. Then they become functionally black. Could this now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t combination be adaptive? Or, given a that they generally don’t congregate in groups, does their bright orange colour announce their presence to others of their species? It’s a mystery.

Meet the Purus Red Howler Monkey! This handsome fellow is next up on our red animal list. Native to tropical forests of Brazil, Peru, and North Bolivia, the Purus red howler is one of a few nest-building monkeys. These monkeys are famous for their loud howls, which can travel up to 5 km (3 mi) through dense rainforest. In fact Howler monkeys hold the record for the loudest land animal!

A large part of why I love photography so much is because it allows me to capture the indescribable beauty that exists in our world. The saying "a photo's worth a thousand words" is so true, because I'd never be able to adequately describe what I saw the day I took this photo. How incredible is this male orangutan I photographed a couple months back? I could stare at his beautiful, oblong face all day, and I'm so glad all of you are able to see him too, thanks to social media. How incredible is it that we live in a time where a person in one corner of the world can capture something so breathtaking and then turn around and share it with thousands of others all around the world? Sadly, orangutans are quickly dying out in the wild due to deforestation and the palm oil industry, so photographs like this may one day be the only way to see one. You can help orangutans like this one by avoiding foods that contain palm oil, and supporting brands that have ditched this unnecessary additive. If we stand against destructive industries like the palm oil trade, then someday there will be more orangutans in the wild!

Happy birthday to Dr Birute Galdikas 🎂! Thank you for all your work bringing awareness and more to wonderful orangutans (and Indonesian rainforests in general). For those that don’t know her, Dr Biruté Galdikas has discovered and contributed so much to the learning and protecting of orangutans. One of her biggest contributions would be the recognition she brought to a virtually ignored species. Little was known of orangutans before Galdikas came around in 1972. She brought widespread attention to orangutans, which is now needed as they became endangered. Galdikas has also brought valuable research about these primates. Some of her discoveries: #1 Galdikas discovered that orangutans have one of the longest birth interval rates of any animal. They tend to only have offspring every 8 years. #2 She documented over 400 different types of food consumed by orangutans, including fruit, insects, honey, vegetation, bark and bird eggs.

From the fastest creatures to the slowest. One of the slowest - by name and nature - is the Slow Lorris. Found in SE Asia, they mostly hide in the trees and can only make a maximum speed of 2 km per hour. What makes them really interesting is that they are one of the few venemous mammals, generating a toxin that they mix with saliva and rub on their body. They also raise their hand rapidly when threatened, leaving scientists to wonder is they mimic a cobra snake 🐍. They are also endangered - sadly taken from the wild as pets.

Gibbons are speedy! They can move through the jungle at up to 35 miles an hour swinging hand to hand with their extra long arms, bridging gaps as wide as 50 feet with a single swinging leap. Their dramatic form of locomotion is called brachiating. Brachiating also gives gibbons the unique advantage of being able to swing out and grab fruits growing at the end of branches, which limits competition for their favorite foods. They are masters of the trees in SE Asia! But threatened due to the usual suspects of poaching and habitat destruction.

Did you know that gorillas are mainly herbivorous? Spending most of their day foraging bamboo, fruits and leafy plants, gorillas also play a vital role in seed dispersal. As such, many large fruit trees depend on the animals to survive.

Happy birthday @janegoodallinst! In honour, we have a chimpanzee fact: although this little one is clearly taking a break, chimpanzees are one of the few animal species that employ tools to do tasks. They shape and use sticks to retrieve insects from their nests or dig grubs out of logs. They also use stones to smash open tasty nuts and employ leaves as sponges to soak up drinking water. Chimpanzees can even be taught to use some basic human sign language. (photo credit: @janegoodallinst) #chimpanzee #primatefacts #animalfacts #animalfactsforstevo

Repost from @speciesaday

The White-headed Langur, Trachypithecus poliocephalus, is critically endangered according to the IUCN Red List (2000). This species has declined over 80% in the past three generations and consists of 65 individuals in northern Vietnam-- as of 2006-- and 700-800 individuals in southern China-- as of 2003. Poaching, land clearing, and development are significant threats to the langur's survival. Since the year 2000, the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project has been working to protect several of the species populations.

Proboscis monkeys (genus Nasalis) are one of the four genera of primate that incorporate a group of monkeys known as the “Odd-nosed monkeys.” This group is found in the subfamily colobinae and consists of the snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus), douc langur (Pygathrix), pig-tailed monkey (Simias) and the aforementioned proboscis monkey (Nasalis). Proboscis monkeys are endemic to Borneo and inhabit dense mangrove forests along rivers and coastal areas. As can be seen in the picture above, these monkeys are characterized by their large fleshy nose. Though the bulbous nose may seem strange to us, male proboscis monkeys use their unique nostrils to attract mates. Scientists believe that these oversized organs create an echo chamber that amplifies the monkey’s call, impressing females and intimidating rival males.

Prehensility is the quality of an appendage or organ that has adapted for grasping or holding. Many New World monkeys in the family Atelidae, including howler monkeys, spider monkeys, and woolly monkeys, have evolved prehensile tails to help in their arboreal locomotion. In this photo, a juvenile black handed spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) is seen utilizing it's tail as a third hand to help move through the canopy with additional ease, security, and efficiency.

Weighing in at 30g and a body length of 9.2cm, Madame Berthe's mouse lemur (Microcebus berthae) is the smallest species of primate on earth. These pocket-sized primates reside in the dry deciduous forests of western Madagascar and are named after the Malagasy primatologist and conservationist, Dr. Berthe Rakotosamimanana. Like other mouse lemurs, Madame Berthe's mouse lemurs are nocturnal solitary foragers that live on a diverse omnivorous diet consisting of insects, small vertebrates, fruits, flowers and gum.

Howler monkeys (genus Alouatta) are New World monkeys found in the tropical forests of Central and South America. These primates are aptly named due to their deafening holler, a noise that has made them the loudest land animal on earth.

These calls are typically performed by group males during dawn or dusk. To reach this volume, male howlers have an enlarged hyoid bone and specialized shell-like vocal chambers.
Though howler monkeys can be frightening, their bark is worse than their bite. Howler monkeys are typical non-aggressive and are widely viewed as indolent. This perception can be seen in the specific epithet of the Guatemalan black howler monkey, pigra, which is derived from the Latin word for "Lazy." Video of A. Pigra by Knut Eisermann

In a "urine-washing" display, the monkey urinates on its hands and feet and then spreads the urine over the rest of its body. Some functions of "urine-washing" may include marking trails for other members of the troop to follow, self-cleaning, displays of dominance, enhanced grasping of branches during arboreal locomotion, controlling body temperature, or communicating reproductive hormone levels.

Mandrillus is the genus of two species of old world monkey found in Central Africa, the drill and the mandrill. When male drills and mandrills are particularly excited, the colors on their testicles and anus become brighter. This is a photo of a male Drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus)

Callitrichines are a subfamily of New World monkeys native to Central and South America, including marmosets, tamarins, and Goeldii's monkeys. In the wild, female callitrichines almost always give birth to fraternal twins with the ability to have two separate fathers. In addition to this unique birthing phenomenon, callitrichines are hematopoietic chimeras, meaning that the twins share DNA through shared placental circulation and exchanging of blood stem cells throughout gestation. Since this exchange occurs, adult males cannot tell which twin they actually fathered, so they help raise both twins equally.

This photo is of an adult female pygmy marmoset (Cebuella pygmaea) and her twins.

Galagos (family Galagidae) are strepsirrhines found solely in Africa. These small nocturnal primates make a surprising variety of vocalizations in the wild. Some of their calls even sound like the crying of a human baby--hence their common name, Bushbabies.

Gorillas frequently purr and hum while they eat. This vocalization seems to be a way for gorillas to express contentment with their meal, as well as a way to communicate to the rest of the band that it is meal time. In captivity, this vocalization is found in both males and females, but in the wild, dominant silverback males are the typically the ones purring with satisfaction. The type of food can even change the volume of the purr, where more favorable foods register a louder hum.

In snub-nosed monkeys (genus Rhinopithecus) male lips plump up and redden as they age, likely to signify reproductive availability and social status.

Titi monkeys are new world monkeys of the genus Callicebus. These monkeys are a monogamous species that live in groups of two to seven individuals consisting of a pair of adults and their offspring. Tail-Twining is an affectionate practice of the tiny titi monkeys. These South American primates will sit on a branch while grooming or resting and affectionately wrap their tails together into a loving spiral. Happy Valentines Day!

Gibbons are lesser apes in the family Hylobatidae. In many gibbon species, adults are sexually dichromatic; meaning that males and females differ in color. In this photo of two yellow cheeked gibbons (Nomascus gabriellae), the female is on the left and the male is on the right.

Mengenal Wau-Wau? Dia adalah anggota keluarga Gibbon atau Owa, dengan nama Latin 'Hylobates'. Dengan ciri khas masing-masing, di Indonesia ditemukan 5 jenis Hylobates yang tersebar di berbagai kepulauan. Mulai dari Aceh, Mentawai, hingga Jawa.
Sayang, akibat deforestasi dan perburuan, populasi mereka terancam berkurang. Padahal, kehadiran mereka di habitatnya sangat vital bagi keberlangsungan hidup semua makhluk di lho!

Bintang tamu kita hari ini adalah monyet! Monyet spesial dari keluarga Macaca. Anggota yang terkenal adalah beruk, yaki, dan masih ada 9 spesies lainnya! 🐵 Karena beberapa aksi manusia, keberlangsungan populasinya terancam. Beberapa monyet sering dikorbankan untuk tes kosmetik, obat-obatan, dan kebutuhan medis. Mereka pun kadang dibunuh karena dianggap hama perkebunan / pertanian! Belum lagi, di beberapa daerah, mereka disantap sebagai makanan lokal, atau bahan upacara adat. Ditambah lagi, berhubung banyak pembalakan hutan, kawanan mereka makin terhimpit hingga terancam punah! 😱 Miris? Iya, kami sangat miris. Karena itu kami ingin mendukung kelestarian primata-primata di Bumi. Jadilah salah satu agen perubahan! ;) #sae #primateclimate #primatefacts #filosofisae #illustration #macaca #monkey #forest #ecobeauty #brushpouch #limitedstock #wesellafewtosavealot #art #indonesia #localbrand

It's Pongo time! Do you know how much they suffer in their own habitat? Don't you think it's so stupid that some people treat them like a parasit IN THEIR NATURAL HOME? Yes! It's like shooing people from their house. With harsh and cruel ways, too. Only for money and pride! And, no, we're not sitting here crying. We have to do something to help them!
Not because we want to protect our safety, but this is for The Whole Earth!
