Primates Skulls Replicas Models
Shop for Primates Skeletons and Skulls Cast Replicas Models - A primate is a mammal of the order Primates which contains pro simians and simians. Primates arose from ancestors that lived in the trees of tropical forests. Many primate characteristics represent adaptations to life in this challenging three-dimensional environment. Most primate species remain at least partly arboreal.
With the exception of humans, who inhabit every continent, most primates live in tropical or subtropical regions of the Americas, Africa and Asia. They range in size from Madame Berthes mouse lemur, which weighs only 30 g 1 oz, to the eastern lowland gorilla, weighing over 440 lbs. According to fossil evidence, the primitive ancestors of primates may have existed in the late Cretaceous period around 65 million years ago; an early close primate relative known from abundant remains is the Late Paleocene Plesiadapis, circa 55 to 58 million years ago. Molecular clock studies suggest the primate branch may be even older, originating in the mid-Cretaceous period around 85 mya.
