Kanji in this term
さる

kun’yomi

From Old Japanese. Appears in the Man'yōshū, completed some time after 759 CE.

Ultimate derivation possibly borrowed from Ainu サロ (saro, monkey, from サㇻ (sar, a tail) + (o, to bear, to wear, to carry)).[1]

The kanji is from Chinese (yuán, ape). Compare Japanese (inoshishi, boar) from Chinese (zhū, pig) and Japanese (buta, pig) from Chinese (tún, suckling pig).
