The Primates and Hominization
The primates are animals with a snout of variable form, characterized by a tendency to an increase in cranial capacity and posterior closure of the orbits. The reduction of the nasal region allowed the development of stereoscopic vision. The hands and feet are often prehensile, the thumb and great toe being opposable to the other digits and the claws replaced by nails.
