A vertebrate order that includes humans, apes, monkeys and lemurs; marked by similar limb and tooth structure and superior thinking ability.
Mammals having large brains, eyes that look forward, and usually opposable thumbs-thumbs they can bend to help pick up objects. Primates include humans, apes, and monkeys.
an mammal in the same group with humans, monkeys, and apes.
A member of the mammalian order Primates. This includes lemurs, monkeys, apes and humans. Species share some characteristics such as hands with opposable thumbs (the tip of the thumb can touch the tips of the fingers across the palm), binocular vision (two images - one from each eye - overlap slightly to give a three dimensional picture of what the animal sees) and slow birth and maturation rates (usually giving birth to a small number of young that take a proportionally long time to reach adulthood). The group seems to have evolved from small agile insect-eating mammals that lived in trees.
The Order of Primates is made up of 12 Families. Primates are athletic and intelligent. Most eat plants, but a few are hunters. They also display intricate social behaviour, especially in apes like the gorilla and chimpanzee.
