4. Welcome To Primarily Primates, INC.
Nonprofit corporation houses and cares for abused and neglected animals, including chimps and orangutans, in San Antonio, Texas.
Primarily Primates, Inc., is a unique non-profit animal protection organization that provides sanctuary, rehabilitation, lifetime care and shelter to various non-native species of primates, birds, mammals, and reptiles that otherwise would continue to suffer from abuse, neglect, or be killed as unwanted surplus. Founded in 1978, Primarily Primates has grown from a facility caring for three monkeys to its present community of more than 600 primates, 150 birds, and various mammals, including a small number of wallabies, horses, bears, and black leopards. As you explore our online sanctuary, you will have the opportunity to meet many of these animals and hear their stories, take a virtual tour of our grounds, read news and information about us, and find out how we can be contacted.
"My only hope is that one day all chimpanzees in research facilities will be retired and no more chimpanzees ever used again."
Dr. Jane Goodall, Scientific Director, The Jane Goodall Institute Primarily Primates, Incorporated could use your support. If you care to help support this great organization please mail your gifts to this address:

Order Primates
The Primates are an ancient and diverse eutherian group, with around 233 living species placed in 13 families. Most dwell in tropical forests. The smallest living primate is the pygmy mouse lemur, which weighs around 30 g. The largest is the gorilla, weighing up to around 175 kg. Primates radiated in arboreal habitats, and many of the characteristics by which we recognize them today ( shortened rostrum and forwardly directed orbits , associated with stereoscopic vision; relatively large braincase ; opposable hallux and pollex ; unfused and highly mobile radius and ulna in the forelimb and tibia and fibula in the hind) probably arose as adaptations for life in the trees or are primitive traits that were retained for the same reason. Several species, including our own, have left the trees for life on the ground; nevertheless, we retain many of these features. Primates are usually recognized based on a suite of primitive characteristics of the skull, teeth, and limbs. Some of these are listed above, including the separate and well-developed radius and ulna in the forearm and tibia and fibula in the hindleg. Others include pentadactyl feet and presence of a clavicle . Additional characteristics (not necessarily unique to primates) include first toe with a nail , while other digits bear either nails or claws, and stomach simple in most forms (sacculated in some leaf-eating cercopithecids). Within primates, there is a tendency towards reduction of the olfactory region of the brain and expansion of the cerebrum (especially the cerebral cortex), correlated with an increasing reliance on sight and increasingly complex social behavior.

Apes, monkeys, and you
The primates include the most familiar of the placental mammals , because they include us, Homo sapiens . Primates also include familiar animals, such as the chimpanzees, gorillas, and monkeys, as well as the somewhat less familiar lemurs, lorises, galagos, pottos, sifakas, indris, aye-ayes, and tarsiers. We're sorry that we don't yet have a proper exhibit on primates, but we've received so many requests for information that we have provided links below to some on-line resources on primates and paleoanthropology. Links: The UCMP Vertebrate Type Collection has extensive holdings of fossil primates. Use the search term "Primates".

"Chimpanzees suffer in captivity, as they are exploited in entertainment, dressed up as pets, dragged around as photographers' props, and imprisoned, in the name of science, in tiny, barren steel cages. I am haunted by dull, blank eyes staring out onto a world that offers them no hope. The least I can do is speak out for them. They cannot speak for themselves." - Jane Goodall

PRIMATES IN PANTS (this is serious) Let me start by showing you exactly what I'm talking about...... Try THIS equation on for size: Yea, this is SERIOUS I want you to stop for one second and ask yourself a simple question. A question that may hold within it the fate of all humans.... How will you know the difference between people and monkeys when they both wear clothes? I see I have your attention now... good. You have come to understand, at least at a very basic level, the extent of the problem with which we have now come face to face. I understand you may be worried now, but please bear with me, there are many questions that may never be answered... I've spent time on the internet so I know stuff, and since you're on the internet too, I bet you know stuff too. But maybe you haven't come across the fear piercing images that I have. The crap in my pants is so thick right now I almost forgot how to crap. THE TRUTH ACTION DOMINANCE Send me your questions and concerns ... s Page (do it)

17. The Primates: Overview
primates are surprisingly variable in size. primates are generally lively, clever,and very successful at adapting to different environmental opportunities.
Overview Ring-tailed lemurs
T he Order Primates includes humans, apes, monkeys, prosimians, and related animals. Many of them may be familiar, but it would not be surprising if you can not immediately visualize prosimians (like the ring-tailed lemurs in the picture on the right). They are an ancient, relatively primitive group of primates which also includes such animals as lorises. A ll of the 190 or more species of primates are classified into one taxonomic order because they are mammals with close evolutionary roots. The exact number of living primate species may not be known. Every few years new ones are found. The tropical forests of South America, Africa, and Southeast Asia may still be hiding unidentified species and varieties. According to Conservation International, a Washington-based non-profit organization, 10% of the primate species are now acutely endangered and will likely become extinct during the next 20 years. Most of the other primate species are also at great risk. The primary cause is deforestation, driven ultimately by human population growth.
