Нe care and feeding of primates in captivity, be they human or other, seems based on a somewhat limited scLentLÙ½c basis. Observation of pathologies or limitations that have been related to nutritional or metabolic “misadventures” perhaps has been the foundation [1,2], at least in earlier times for design of “optimal diets.” Нat has changed from recommendations related to “four basic food groups” to the today’s more extensive recommendations for humans. But, what is appropriate for our relatives? Diet has been subject to great interest across many Ù½eOds Teeth have been examined to separate carnivore from herbivore and frugivores, with some LdentLÙ½ed as belonging to omnivores. Of course, even herbivores and frugivores occasionally consume meat, so identifying normal diet is more complicated. Semantics may play a role as insectivores are consuming non-plant materials, so are they carnivores?
