But it is not the only primate that eats meat.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Correct. Many primates are omnivores, with fruit, nuts, and leaves making up a larger portion of their diet.

Primate Fact of the Day #9: The original design for Chewbacca was based on a Lemur, a prosimian endemic to Madagascar (Yes, just like King Julien from the film Madagascar).

Primate Fact of the Day #10: Apes like Gorillas, Chimps, and Orangutans sleep in nests constructed from woven tree limbs and leaf padding. This helps keep them safe from big cats that prowl the jungle floor at night.
