Apes (Hominoidea) are a superfamily of Old World tailless anthropoid catarrhine primates native to Africa and Southeast Asia. They are distinguished from other primates by higher intellects and a wider degree of freedom of motion at the shoulder joint as evolved by the influence of brachiation. There are two extant branches of the superfamily Hominoidea: the gibbons, or lesser apes; and the hominids, or great apes.
