Monkey is a creature type used for cards depicting relatively small primates usually having a flat, hairless face. Unlike the larger apes, monkeys usually do have tails and predominatly live in trees.
The first creatures to bear the type were Tree Monkey from Portal Second Age and Zodiac Monkey from: Portal Three Kingdoms. These were changed to Apes in the Ninth Edition Core Set, although this was scientificly incorrect.
