Monkeys vs. chimpsBoth chimpanzees and monkeys are primates, although monkeys are less closely related to humans.

The main obvious difference between the two is that monkeys have tails; chimps and other apes do not. Monkeys are structurally closer to four-legged animals like cats and dogs, while chimpanzees and other apes are more similar to human beings, both structurally and in terms of their level of intelligence and behavior. Apes have been observed to operate within a social structure and have even been taught to use sign language and to type.
