Prosimians are the most primitive of the living primates, which also include the monkeys and apes. The name prosimian means pre-monkey. Here’s a  link that explains the differences among primates, prosimians and apes. The beautiful animals featured in today’s photo montage include black and white ruffed lemurs, Japanese macaques, Sakis, cotton-top and lion-headed tamarins and can all be seen at the Central Park Zoo.

Check out this up-close and personal polar bear encounter we had at the Lincoln Park Zoo below today’s montage.  It is guaranteed to cool you off in this summer’s heat.
