A primate (/ ˈ p r aɪ m eɪ t / PRY-mayt) (from Latin primat- from primus: "prime, first rank") is a eutherian mammal constituting the taxonomic order es arose 85–55 million years ago first from small terrestrial mammals, which adapted to living in the trees of tropical forests: many primate characteristics represent adaptations to life in this challenging environment Class: Mammalia.
