An Olive baboon, a kind of monkey

A monkey is a polypheletic classification of any long tailed primate that is not a prosimian. Varieties of them can be found in South America, Africa and Asia. Evolutionists believe that humans and monkeys, like all species, share a common ancestor, which is disputed by more accurate creation scientists. A lack of transitional fossils between apes and humans supports the creationist side.

In a rhesus monkey study, a gamma male raised its tail when the alpha and beta males are not in the vicinity, and then resumed its normal posture on the return of the alpha and beta males.[1]
