Proboscis Monkey

Nasalis larvatus known as Long-nosed Monkey is a reddish brown Old World monkey that was arboreal. It’s the only species in genus Nasalis that is monotypic.
The most distinctive characteristic of the monkey is the male’s large protruding nose. The objective of the large nose is uncertain, but it has been indicated that it’s due to sexual selection. The female Proboscis Monkey prefers large-nosed male, thereby propagating the peculiarity.
Males are much bigger than females, reaching 72 cm (28 inches) in length, with an up to 75 cm tail, and weighing up to 24 kg (53 pounds).
Its digestive system is split into several parts, with distinguishing gut flora, which aid in digesting leaves. This digestive process releases a lot of gas, leading to the monkey’s “bloated” guts. A side effect of the digestive system that is unique is that it’s unable to digest mature fruit , unlike most other simians. The diet consists largely of fruits, seeds and leaves.

The Pink Fairy Armadillo (Chlamyphorus truncatus) or Pichiciego is the lowest species of armadillo (mammals of the family Dasypodidae, usually known for having a bony armor shell). It is about 90-115 mm  Long excluding the tail, and is pale rose or pink in color. It is within central Argentina where it inhabits dry grasslands and sandy plains with cacti and thorn bushes. It’s the power to bury itself entirely in an issue of seconds if frightened.
The Pink Fairy Armadillo burrows little holes near ant colonies in dry dirt. It feeds mainly on ant larvae and ants . Sometimes it feeds on snails, worms, insects and larvae, or various plant and root material.
