Primates are Eutherian mammals that have existed from the Paleocene into today.  Primates are broken down into Prosimians and Anthropoids.  Prosimians are the oldest primates--includes lemurs, aye-aye, and lorises--and Anthropoids are the primates that evolved later--Old and New World monkeys and apes.  Primates have flexible hands and feet, eyes that face forward, and large brains.  Australopithecines and hominids are included in primates.
