Lemurs are not monkeys. Lemurs, monkeys and apes (and humans) are all in the order “primates”. Primates have five fingers on each hand, fingernails, and opposable thumbs. The bones in their forearms and hind limbs are unfused (in the forearm, they posess a radius and ulna, in their hind limbs a tibia and fibula). This structure is likely to have arisen as an adaptation to an arboreal lifestyle (primates evolved from tree-dwelling ancestors and many remain arboreal to this day).
