We are therefore classified in conjunction with all other apes during a primate sub-group mentioned because the hominoids (Superfamily Hominoidea).

This ape group are often further subdivided into the great Apes and Lesser Apes. Humans have bodies that are genetically and structurally very almost like those of the great Apes then we are classified within the good Apes sub-group which is additionally mentioned because the hominids (Family Hominidae).
