Unguiculate, claviculate, placental mammals, with orbits encircled by
bone; three kinds of teeth, at least at one time of life; brain always
a posterior lobe and calcarine fissure; the innermost digit of at least

one pair of extremities opposable; hallux with a flat nail or none; a
well developed caecum; penis pendulous; testes scrotal; always two
pectoral mammae.

In what way are humans *not* exactly primates?
