Well Nicholas, I'm glad you asked.
It just so happens that primates are omnivorous, and their teeth are
multipurpose, allowing them to cut, tear, and grind. Although nonhuman
primates will occasionally eat the flesh of other mammals, their diet
consists primarily of leaves, fruit, bark, nuts and other vegetable
matter, birds, eggs, rodents, insects, and frogs.
Seth, I can see that you're already taking umbrage with the fact that
rodents are technically also mammals, but I assure you that I am aware
of this, and was referring to other large, non-rodent mammalls.
