Lab 10 Concept Review 1. Three traits found in primates that distinguish them from other mammals are that they have opposable thumbs and big toes allowing them to be able to grasp onto objects, better vision than mammals (they have better depth perception as they have forward-facing eyes, color vision, and more bone around their eyes allowing eye support), and larger brains in comparison to their body size. 2. Which of the following primate groups is most closely related to lemurs?
3. Lorises:
4. The only place on Earth that you can find lemurs living in the wild is Madagascar. 5. One of the many traits that tarsiers share with lorises and lemurs is eating primarily insects. (You can also say they are nocturnal, live in small social groups, or leap through trees) One trait that tarsiers and anthropoids share is instead of having a wet rhinarium, they have short snouts and dry noses. (You can also say they both have more enclosed bony orbits or lack the dental comb seen in lemurs and lorises) 6. One trait that distinguishes the platyrrhines and catarrhines is that the platyrrhines (New World monkeys) most commonly have three premolars in all quadrants of the mouth whereas catarrhines (Old World monkeys) tend to only have two. 7. Which of the following traits is found in some New World monkeys and none of the Old World monkeys?
8. I live in the forests of central Africa? I am arboreal and have a long tail. I have bilophodont molars, and I have a diet that includes a lot of leaves. What type of primate am I?
