Primates are remarkably recent animals. Most species of living things had become extinct long before the first monkeys and their prosimian ancestors evolved. While the Earth is about 4.55 billion years old and the first life dates to at least 3.5 billion years ago, the first primates did not appear until around 60 million years ago. That was after the dinosaurs had become extinct.
