The video is captured in Sarawak, where dense forests meet winding rivers, unexpected encounters with wildlife are not uncommon.
As the boat cruises along the river, the monkey sits on the edge, much like a human, enjoying the scenic beauty.

Its pot-bellied appearance and reddish-brown fur, also set it apart from other primates, although not in an aesthetically pleasing way.
Primarily, a larger nose amplifies their vocalizations and plays a vital role in attracting potential mates and asserting dominance
Additionally, some researchers believe that the nose might also help in cooling down the monkey in the humid environments of Borneo.
They can swim underwater for distances of up to 70 feet and often choose to rest near the river’s edge.
They possess various physical features to support their aquatic habits, including partial webbing between their fingers and toes.
