A handful of roughly 36-million-year-old fossil teeth unearthed in Peru have put new bite into the idea that ancient African monkeylike primates
somehow reached South America and sparked the evolution of New World monkeys.
14 ( ANI ): A new study has shown that humans and other primates
burn 50 percent fewer calories each day than other mammals, suggesting that these remarkably slow metabolisms explain why humans and other primates
