It is a close relative of our species, although not as close as other types of primates such as the gorilla or the chimpanzee.
They are superior animals, endowed with a high margin of intelligence, which allows them to socialize, organize themselves hierarchically, and initially solve problems.
They have a tail, a more primitive skeleton, and generally smaller size. The monkey is abundant in regions such as Central and South America.
The monkey’s habitat is the warm and wild areas of the equatorial region, although each species has adapted to specific conditions in savannahs and forests.
In America they are much more abundant in the Central American, South American and Mexican regions, in Europe, they are in the area of Gibraltar, but we find more monkeys in the African and Asian jungles.
The misunderstanding of evolutionary theory has led to the widespread assumption that the monkey is an ancestor of the human being when in reality, it is only a distant relative.
All primates would have come from a common ancestor that abandoned the rest of the land mammals and climbed trees, around 65,000,000 years ago. During that period, life was abundant in birds and mammals, and they were beginning to adapt to new habitats, such as trees.
This protoprimate would have given birth to lemurs, lorises, and similar species, thus giving rise to the evolutionary branch, which would make the first tailed primates appeared about forty million years ago, and it is speculated that this would happen on the Asian continent.
