Am I related (evolutionarily) to my dog and to that frog?

If so, who am I more closely related to?

THE LAB

After observing the different primate species on the NEPC Instagram, generate some questions you might ask based on your observation in Step 1 and the Step 2 Example. Record them in your Lab Notebook.

POTENTIAL QUESTIONS

What is your evolutionary relationship to the other living primates?

​How similar and how different are you from other primate species?
