What did the first primates eat? How big were they? Did they live in the trees or on the ground? In this interactive teen cafe on comparative anatomy, you'll work in teams to explore the anatomy of your team's mystery monkey and predict the answers to these questions. And you can put your artistic skills to work—each team will draw their monkey and choose a name for their newly discovered species of primate.
