Hi,
The difference for primate and non primate is not possible because the defination of primate is like
"A primate is a member of the biological order Primates , the group that contains lemurs, the Aye-aye, lorisids, galagos, tarsiers, monkeys, and apes, with the last category including great apes. With the exception of humans, who inhabit every continent on Earth."
