Under the current classification system there are two families of hominoids:
the family Hylobatidae consists of 4 genera and 14 species of gibbon, including the Lar Gibbon and the Siamang, collectively known as the lesser apes.
the family Hominidae consisting of chimpanzees, gorillas, humans and orangutans collectively known as the great apes.
A few other primates, such as the Barbary Ape, have the word ape in their common names (usually to indicate lack of a tail), but they are not regarded as true apes.
Except for gorillas and humans, all true apes are agile climbers of trees. Their diet is best described as omnivorous, their diet consisting of fruit, including grass seeds, and in most cases other animals, either hunted or scavenged, along with anything else available and easily digested. They are native to Africa and Asia, although humans have spread to all parts of the world.
Most nonhuman ape species are rare or endangered. The chief threat to most of the endangered species is loss of tropical rainforesthabitat, though some populations are further imperiled by hunting for bushmeat.

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!
