Why do we still have monkeys?

If the human race evolved from monkeys, why do we still have monkeys?
Claire Smith from Hertfordshire (age 25-34)

By its nature, evolution is a slow process. Humans are said to evolve from the apes. We still have apes today, are they still not evolving to humanoids and why do we not see the intermediate species living today?

  1. Humans and monkeys evolved from a common ancestor. So several million years ago there was a group of apes which are no longer around today. From this group, some evolved into humans and some into monkeys. The reason that they evolved differently is that the two groups have different selective pressures on them. Monkeys found life better in the trees and humans found life better on the ground so we became different as our bodies evolved to the different environments.
