CHAP. 100. (44.)—RESEMBLANCE OF THE APE TO MAN.
As to the various kinds of apes, they offer a perfect resem-
blance to man in the face, the nostrils, the ears, and the eyelids; being the only quadrupeds, in fact, that have eyelashes on
the lower eyelid. They have mammæ also on the breast, arms
and legs, which bend in opposite directions, and nails upon
the hands and fingers, the middle finger being the longest.
They differ somewhat from man in the feet; which, like the
hands, are of remarkable length, and have a print similar to
that of the palm of our hand. They have a thumb also, and
articulations similar to those in man. The males differ from
man in the sexual parts only, while all the internal viscera
exactly resemble those of man.
