Lemurs, lorises and bushbabies
« on: October 31, 2012, 05:27:50 PM »
From Wikipedia:

Prosimians are a type of primate that include lemurs, lorises, bushbabies, and tarsiers, but not monkeys, apes, or humans (simians). They are considered to have characteristics that are more "primitive" than those of monkeys and apes. Prosimians are the only primates native to Madagascar, and are also found in Africa and Asia.
