I found some pictures randomly googling on the internet which made me realize the primate family tree is a lot more diverse than we typically think about.
When we think about primates we usually think chimps and gorillas and baboons.
But primates vary in size and appearance maybe even more than dogs. I thought I’d share some of the more interesting ones I came across.
These are primates. Look at the little hands and everything.
(Looks almost like a gremlin)
This freaky primate looks almost more like a wingless bat than a primate. Then again both are mammals.
This guy just looks cool.
(“Mouse” lemur, the smallest known primate, usually is about 3 inches tall and just over 1 ounce in weight)
And (edit) by popular request:
Saw these pictures and was kind of blown away at just how diverse the primate family is. All of these animals are your cousins.
Life is cool.
If you enjoyed this or thought any of the above were adorable (or freaky), please click recommend so others can enjoy too : )
