Who were our first ancestors?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Who were our first ancestors?       
Who were our first ancestors? Humans belong to a group of mammals called primates. It includes apes, monkeys and several much smaller animals such as lemurs and bush babies. As much as 50 million years ago, back in the Eocene Period, there were traces of primate-like animals.

They were small and looked rather like squirrels, but their eyes faced forwards like modern monkeys and they had grasping hands and feet.

These animals evolved into monkey-like animals, but remains of primates are scarce and the fossil record contains many gaps.

Those few remains that have been found are of tree-living monkeys that are very similar to monkeys living today.
