Some words are shown in bold, like this. You can find out what they mean by looking in the glossary.

What Are Primates?

What is that noise? It’s deafening! Up in the trees above sits a howler monkey calling to let others know where the group is feeding. His call can be heard up to 3 miles (5 kilometers) away.

There are more than 350 species of primate, and these include monkeys—and humans! Our closest relatives are apes and monkeys. We are alike in many ways. Primates are mammals. This means they have hair or fur on their bodies and produce milk for their babies to drink.

This squirrel monkey is a primate. It is intelligent, likes to live in groups, and has eyes at the front of its head, just as humans do.

Common features

Primates have many things in common. They are mainly arboreal (live in trees). They are intelligent, which means they can think about problems and try to solve them. They can learn new skills and pass them on to infants. They also share a desire to be social (to live with others). Many species of primate live in large groups called troops.

Endangered

One thing nearly all primates have in common is that they are endangered. In many cases, the threats come from humans. Habitat destruction and hunting are just two of the problems faced by primates.

This map shows where in the world non-human primates live.
