Freaks & Creeps: Weirdest Monkey Alive

Freaks & Creeps: Weirdest Monkey Alive
Zoologist Lucy Cooke is on a quest to champion the oddball creatures of the animal kingdom and show the world what these underdogs have to offer. Lucy lands in Borneo to find the proboscis monkey, one of the oddest primates, with a potbelly and a big, pink balloon nose. Along the way, she meets scientists studying flying frogs; bats that roost inside carnivorous pitcher plants; and dung beetles that live on the forest floor, rejuvenating the ecosystem by making piles of dung disappear in hours.
