The history of primates is our own. It began 65 million years ago, when the ancestors of the apes were the contemporaries of the last dinosaurs.
Still today, on the island of Madagascar, we can find one of the first links in the evolution that led to Man. Primates have remained at an elementary stage of development, which gives us an idea of what the primitive species may have been.
After that, they have spread and develop in many different ways from Africa to Asia and South America.
