Refer to the mystery primatedentitions provided by your instructor (or those depicted in the lab appendix) to complete thechart below. Describe the incisors, molars, and muscle attachment on the mandible of eachmystery primate. Using this trait information, also determine the likely diet of each mysteryprimate, and name an example of one primate that has this diet.Mystery Primate AMystery Primate BMystery Primate CMystery Primate DIncisorsSmallSmallTooth CombMolarsLarge/FlatSmall/PointedSmallRoundedMandible Size andMuscleAttachmentVerylarge/sagittalcrestSmall/LittlemuscleattachmentSmall/LittlemuscleattachmentMedium sizeand muscleattachmentDietFolivoryInsectivoryGummivoryFrugivoryExample PrimateGorillaTarsierLemursOrangutansExercise 2Work with a small group or alone to complete this exercise. Review the primate descriptionsbelow. For each primate, describe the primate’s likely body size anddigestive tract.1.Primate A is an insectivore that eats a lot of moths, stick insects, and grasshoppers.These foods provide small packets of energy that are easy to digest.a.Body size: Smallb.Digestive tract: Small and Simple2.Primate B is a frugivore that eats a lot of berries, figs, and other tree fruits. These foodsprovide intermediate packets of energy that are relatively easy to digest.a.Body size: MediumWide
