What Are Primates?

What was that? Something moved in the trees! It was a woolly lemur leaping from tree to tree. Lemurs use their powerful legs to push themselves a distance of up to 33 feet (10 meters).

There are thought to be more than 350 species of primates. These include lemurs, apes, monkeys—and humans! Our closest relatives are apes and monkeys. We are very 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 map shows where in the world non-human primates live.

Common features

Primates can be very different, but they also have many things in common. Primates are mainly arboreal, which means they can live in trees. They are also intelligent. They can think about problems and try to solve them. They can learn new skills and pass them on to their young. The other thing they share is a desire to be social, which means they like to live with others. Many species of primate live in large groups called troops.

Lemur species vary a lot. Some are active during the day, while others are active at night. Some like to live on their own, while other species prefer to live in groups. Nearly all are threatened or endangered in the wild.
