Humans are part of the biological group known as primates. We sure are an unusual species of primate, though!
Primates include lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, and apes – a group of species that is well known for being social, smart, and very adept at using their hands. They are also very vocal and communicative with the members of their social group. And they move around in a wide variety of ways, including sometimes on two legs.
Remind you of anyone?
We invite you to enjoy the most unusual primate of all!
