The Naked Ape: A Zoologist's Study of the Human Animal (ISBN 0-385-33430-3) is a 1967 book by Desmond Morris which looks at human beings as a species and compares them to other animals. It depicts human behavior as largely evolved to meet the challenges of prehistoric life as a hunter-gatherer (see nature versus nurture).
