Ape, not monkey a comic strip about science, skepticism and their relentless battles with superstition and pseudo-science.

Toby is an ape, not monkey. A bonobo that enjoys science and sees the world through skeptical eyes. Pastor Bear: A loving Christian who wants everyone to share in his love of God—whether they want to or not. Wilbur: A lefty westie and spiritual environmentalist. He sees himself as the voice of reason when science and religion conflict, but has yet to fully understand either.
H.R.: The confidence man/mongoose, whose cynical attitude allows him to make as much money from the gullible animals in the zoo. Thomas is a good tortoise who always tries to do the right thing.  He looks up to Pastor Bear as a mentor, which is not always the best thing. Clemens: A bulldog of a monkey, who has no patience for faith and unreason.  A happy warrior he is not, but he does enjoy it.
Arlen: A paranoid pika, who prides himself on his skepticism of everything from authority to science itself.  Conspiracies are everywhere and the only safety he knows is he underground home. Piggy McCarthy despises vaccines because he sees them as dirty.  He also finds himself constantly at odds with Toby, who is skeptical of his skepticism. Dee-Quack Chopra: The master of woo, who always looks on the bright side of quantum consciousness.
