Insectivore: diet of insects
Faunivore: diet of invertebrates and vertebrates
Gummivore: diet of tree exudates
Graminivore: small seeds and grasses
Omnivore: varied diet of any of the above
Know primate taxonomy up until the infraorder level
Strepsirhine characteristics
-Dental tooth comb
-Moist rhinarium
-Unfused mandibular and frontal symphases
-Tapetum lucidum
-Postorbital bar – bone around the eye
-Two superfamiles: Lumuroidea and Lorisoidea
--see better in the dark
Lemuroidea
-Madagascar and Comoro islands
-Arboreal quadruplets and leapers; some are partially terrestrial
