Proboscis monkeys' (Nasalis larvatus) river crossing behavior was examined as a potential behavioral response to predation threat. N. larvatus' major predator at the Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia, appeared to be the false gavial (Tomistoma schlegeli), a crocodilian. An adolescent female proboscis monkey was captured and drowned by a false gavial during this study. The monkeys crossed the river at its more narrow points, with several individuals or groups crossing… Expand
Clouded leopard (Neofelis diardi) predation on proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in Sabah, Malaysia
TLDR
It is suggested that clouded leopard and crocodile might be significant potential predators of proboscis monkeys of any age or sex and that predation threats elicit the monkeys’ anti-predator strategies. Expand
Ranging Behavior of Proboscis Monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in the Lower Kinabatangan, Northern Borneo
TLDR
The ranging behavior of proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) at two sites in the Lower Kinabatangan Region of northern Borneo was studied, and rainfall and phenology did not influence ranging patterns. Expand
Selection of river crossing location and sleeping site by proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in Sabah, Malaysia
TLDR
The frequency of river crossings for focal monkeys in the BE‐Group was significantly higher at locations with narrow branch‐to‐bank distances, and sleeping sites locations that offer arboreal escape routes may protect proboscis monkeys from leopard attack. Expand
Proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) social organization: Nature and possible functions of intergroup patterns of association

TLDR
Proboscis monkey socioecology was studied at the Natai Lengkuas Station, Tanjung Puting National Park, in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia and associations between groups may play a role in displacement avoidance and/or predation avoidance. Expand
Ranging Behavior of Proboscis Monkeys in a Riverine Forest with Special Reference to Ranging in Inland Forest
TLDR
Not only food availability but also the risk of predation appears to influence the ranging of the BE-Group, a unimale group of proboscis monkeys along the Menanggul River, Sabah, Malaysia. Expand
Sleeping site selection by proboscis monkeys (Nasalis larvatus) in West Kalimantan, Indonesia
TLDR
This study has shown that proboscis monkeys (at Sungai Tolak) have a very strong preference for large trees located near the river, which may exacerbate the problems of forest loss for these endangered monkeys. Expand
RIVER CROSSINGS IN MEXICAN MONKEYS
During a nine month field study, we assess the ability of spider (Ateles geoffroyi) and howler (Alouatta pigra) monkeys to cross a large Mesoamerican river, and if this behavior is related toExpand
Social behaviors of all-male proboscis monkeys when joined by females
In a riverine forest along the Menanggul River, which is a tributary of the Kinabatangan River, Sabah, Malaysia, I observed an all-male group of proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) consisting ofExpand
PROBOSCIS MONKEYS (NASALIS LARVATUS (WURMB, 1787)) HAVE UNUSUALLY HIGH-PITCHED VOCALIZATIONS
TLDR
The high pitch vocalizations of captive proboscis monkeys in the Singapore Zoological Gardens are analysed and it is discussed that the high frequency may be an adaptation for predator avoidance (crocodiles) and/or communication in dense vegetation. Expand
Inter-individual relationships in proboscis monkeys: a preliminary comparison with other non-human primates
TLDR
Although the agonistic behaviour matrix based on the 33 intra-group agonistic events was indicative of non-significant linearity, there were some specific dominated individuals within the group of proboscis monkeys Nonetheless, grooming behaviour among adult females within a group were not affected by the dominance hierarchy.

TLDR
Proboscis monkey social organization was studied at the Natai Lengkuas station, Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia and indicated that the groups formed two separate bands, the first evidence for such a two‐tiered system of organization in an arboreal colobine species.

TLDR
Proboscis monkey social organization was studied at the Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia and one‐male groups appear to be “female bonded”; adult females direct affiliative behaviors towards their offspring and other adult females, not towards the male. Expand
Brief report: Crocodile predation on a crab‐eating macaque in Borneo
TLDR
An immature crab‐eating macaque (Macaca fascicularis) was seized by a crocodile which rapidly emerged from the water and then resubmerged with the monkey in its jaws, indicating crocodile predation on crab‐ eating macaques was probably more frequent in the past. Expand
