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 predominantly live in trees.
History[edit | edit source]
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 scientifically incorrect.
