Bigger is better: male proboscis monkeys’ enhanced noses evolved to attract mates

Astronomy & Space

When it comes to the animal kingdom, bigger is better. Well, at least for proboscis monkeys, famously known for their long, large and droopy noses. Researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) have provided a world-first explanation for why male proboscis monkeys have larger and "enhanced" nasal structures.
