The San Francisco Zoo is great place to visit and has a lot of primates to observe. You can see the aye-aye and some other lemurs, several monkey species, and chimpanzees.

Im suppose to observe a primate for two hours and write about what I saw.
The primate must be from the San Francisco zoo so please do your research on their website and make sure they even have that primate.

Taxonomic Classification—Kingdom, Phylum…Genus and species
Social Structure—what kind of groups do they live in?
Habitat—where do they live (geographical range) and in what kind of vegetation?
Diet—what do they eat?
Are they endangered? Threatened?
What time of the day did you observe them?
How many animals were in the enclosure? Could you tell how many are adults, juveniles, or infants? Could you tell the difference between males and females?
What kinds of behaviors did you see them engage in? (e.g., grooming, feeding, resting, nursing, sexual behavior, aggression, play)
What did you think about while watching them?

All of this information may not be posted at the zoo or available in course materials. You can also use the zoo website, PrimateInfoNet, or other reputable sources online. If you use any other sources, be sure to cite them and include references.
