Most people when they look at the pot-bellied proboscis monkeys, assume that the monkey has nothing better to do all day than drinking beer and sitting around doing nothing on the trees (hence the beer belly).
That is not true, of course. Proboscis monkeys don’t drink beer (although they do like bitter stuff.) The cause of their big belly is all natural, and even Marie France wouldn’t be able to slim them down.
Anyway, Mr Proboscis Monkey (the handsome fellow in the picture above) wants me to dispel the notion that his family all have big butts, and has sent me some pictures of them participating in various popular sports.
So here we go…
100m Sprint (on 4 legs)
Swimming (Doggy Paddle)
