The Naked Ape

Lacking a mammal's normal coat of fur,
The species was nicknamed the naked ape,
But paradoxically they do prefer
To keep their bare-skinned bodies mostly draped. 

Some nudists walk among them, it is true,
And in the summer, on the beach you'll find
They get quite close to naked - yes they do -
But get too naked and you might be fined. 

In northern climes, when winter's in the air,
A snowstorm on your bare form is the worst. 
There are some Finns who will take up the dare,
But they warm up inside a sauna first. 

The nickname's catchy, but, who would have guessed?
The naked ape is almost always dressed!
