It doesn't have hooves, but it is found in the wild in Africa, although very few are left in the wild. It occasionally climbs trees although trees are not its main habitat, and sometimes it eats insects, but they are not a staple of its diet.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Is it a type of monkey?

You're trying very hard, and your hard work shall very soon be rewarded, since I think you're very close.

It is found worldwide.
It is a primate.
It does not belong to xenarthra or carnivora.
It has no tail.

No, it's not a gorilla, but close.

You're so very, very close! Maybe this wasn't as easy as I'd thought.

baboon? sounds like it
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

A baboon is an old world monkey, right?
It is a bonobo?

All of these are very, very close, but not quite. Let me recap some of the characteristics before someone gets mad at me:

It is an omnivorous primate that will eat just about anything. It has no tail. Very few remain in the wild (defined as anything outside civilization), and it distribution is worldwide.

Maybe that review will help. If not, keep trying and you're sure to get it.
