The Lawrence Jacobsen Library built a collection of over 6,500 natural history images depicting hundreds of nonhuman primate species. A selection of the “better” images is available here.
As a taxonomic order, primates show a diversity in size and shape, hair length and coloring, movement and vocal calls that is breathtaking and spectacular. Use the links on this page to experience even the rarest of habitats and the animals inhabiting them.
We’re always interested in donations of high quality images of nonhuman primates, especially for species that are under-represented in our collection. Please contact us if you would like to contribute an image.
