In order to photograph the world’s most fascinating primates in the wild, photographers Fiona Rogers and Anup Shah have traveled the world. Check out these amazing primates. Enjoy.

A pair look through the foliage at a national park in Gabon.
It is thought that the large nose that gives the proboscis its name is used to attract females. The nose can reach 7 in. (18 cm) in length.
Highly adapted to life in trees, the Verreaux’s Sifaka hops and balances as if on a branch when moving on solid ground.
This male is not fully mature. Photographed in Gabon, he makes a threatening grimace.
Mandrills are notoriously elusive. This female is walking with a suckling.

A curious young male approaches the camera.
Gelada baboons maintain sizable social groups larger than any other nonhuman primates’.
Though not endangered, the gelada population is smaller than it once was. In 2009, the International Union for Conservation of Nature counted 200,000, less than half of the population in the 1970s.
