Antics in the Wild
Primates – which consist of monkeys, apes and more – have long bewildered our imaginations with their cheekiness, antics, similarities and human-like behaviour. Monkeys and apes are both primates, with the main difference being that monkeys have tails while apes do not. Today, there are about 260 known living species of monkeys and six types of apes in the world. This series of photos capture the simian race at their most human and picturesque, from travelling to sleeping to swimming and even group hugging.
