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.

I had no idea the babies hatched from eggs. Learn something new everyday. Drinking Beverage

What'd you think the storks were about? Facepalm

Primate Fact of the Day #13: The genitals of female apes and monkeys swell to many times the normal size during their period of estrus. This signals that they are sexually receptive, causing males to compete for access to them.

RE: Primate Fact of the Day
Primate Fact of the Day #15: One of the Pope’s many titles is “Primate of Italy”. Both the title and the order have the same Latin root, primas, meaning “highest”. This is because the Pope is considered the highest religious authority and humans, apes, and monkeys were placed in the highest order by the Swedish zoologist Carl Linnaeus, who coined the taxonomic term “Primates” in 1758.

RE: Primate Fact of the Day
This is my response to the recent film The Good Dinosaur (2015)...

Primate Fact of the Day #16 - Humans would not exist if the dinosaurs had never gone extinct 65 million years ago (MYA). Early mammals quickly flooded the massive ecological void left by the "terrible lizards" and radiated across the planet adapting to their new environments. The earliest known primates appeared around 55 MYA and the genus Homo appeared around 3 MYA.
