'''Amazon Women''' are an all female race native to [[Xerxes IV]], which is located in [[Melmac]]'s tri-planet area. [[ALF]] claims that they cruise around braless in 4-wheel drive vehicles. Amazon Women can be highly aggressive, as ALF warned they would crush their foe's pelvis if mocked.

When they come over, Wille Tanner, pretending to be "Mr. Universe," is forced to make up a story about Amazon Women capturing him for strange "sexual purposes."

Amazon Women of Xerxes IV

ALF receives a letter from The National Inquisitor asking him to write an article about the Amazon Women of Xerxes IV. He writes under the pen name "Mr. Universe."

Amazon Women or long-nosed monkey, known as the bekantan in Indonesia, is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkeywith an unusually large nose. It is endemic to the southeast Asian island of Borneo.

This species co-exists with the Bornean orangutan.[3] It belongs in the monotypic genus Nasalis, although the pig-tailed langur has traditionally also been included in this genus.[4]

The monkey also goes by the Indonesian name monyet belanda ("Dutch monkey"), or even orang belanda ("Dutchman"), as Indonesians remarked that the Dutch colonisers often had similarly large bellies and noses.

Females become sexually mature at the age of five years. They experience sexual swelling, which involves the genitals becoming pink or reddened.[16][19]At one site, matings largely take place between February and November, while births occur between March and May.[20] Copulations tend to last for half a minute.[14][16] The male will grab the female by the ankles or torso and mount her from behind.[14] Both sexes will encourage mating, but they are not always successful.[19] When soliciting, both sexes will make pouted faces. In addition, males will sometimes vocalize and females will present their backsides and shake their head from side to side.[13][19][20][12] Mating pairs are sometimes harassed by subadults.[19] Proboscis monkeys may also engage in mounting with no reproductive purpose, such as playful and same-sex mounting, and females will attempt to initiate copulation even after they have conceived.[12] Gestation usually last 166–200 days or slightly more.[20] Females tend to give birth at night or in the early morning. The mothers then eat the placenta and lick their infants clean.[21] The young begin to eat solid foods at six weeks and are weaned at seven months old. The nose of a young male grows slowly until reaching adulthood. The mother will allow other members of her group to hold her infant.[14][20][21] When a resident male in a one-male group is replaced, the infants are at risk of infanticide.[22]
