“Hmm I wonder what mountain building processes formed the Apennines?” was my first thought when I saw this picture... #platetectonics #finals #APES #NEVER #DIES

Happy International Monkey Day!
.
A fair homage to, according to me, one of the most incredible groups of animals. With more than 250 species of them living worldwide, let's remember that we need to protect their forests, and let's think that they need to be in their jungles and not as exotic pets in our homes. At the end of the day, they are our closest relatives so let’s show them the respect that they deserve it! :)

Why are we called Homo Sapiens? --> Species that evolve from similar ancestor are grouped together under the title Genus.

Species: Sapiens (meaning: wise)
Genus: Homo (meaning: man)

However, we cannot shy away from the truth: we are members of the great apes. We are the closest to chimpanzees (our living relatives). ALSO: We aren't the only humans who lived on this earth. We had some siblings too!
Remember: the true meaning of Human is 'an animal belonging to the genus Homo'. --> There used to be many other species of this genus: Homo Sapiens (shown in the picture above)

Actors Kim Hunter and Roddy McDowell observe as a real chimp was given a somewhat human-like prosthetic nose on set of “Escape from the Planet of the Apes”. They did this to better match the chimp’s nose with the human actors with ape makeup.

Today is Monkey Day!
The holiday is mainly about monkeys, but it also celebrates other non-human primates such as apes 🦍, tarsiers, and lemurs 🐒
.
Monkey Day is dedicated to raising awareness about non-human primates. There are many issues surrounding primates, many are endangered, then there are questions of animal rights and the usage of primates in medical research.
.
Do you know how to distinguish between a monkey and an ape?
