    50-55 million years ago

    The earliest ones are found in the fossil record dating to 50-55 million years ago. These first prosimians thrived during the Eocene Epoch. There were no monkeys or apes for them to compete with yet.

    Like Professor indicated, the first ape species evolved from a monkey ancestor about 24 million years ago.  The first monkey species appeared roughly 50 million years ago.

    When God created them, and NOT through “the” fish that crawled out of the ocean.

    Apes first appeared about 5 million years ago. Monkeys go back much farther than that.

    The first monkey-like Simian animal came around 25-20 million years ago. Apes might've been closer to 10 million years.
