Going Ape Over a Possible New Species

No votes yet

Everyone knows that we discover new sea-dwelling species on a regular basis. And, new species of arthopods are hardly news, unless they happen to be found in NYC's Central Park. But a new species of large ape? Is it even possible? Read this article at CNN for more information.

This find looks very interesting on several fronts. Bipedal specimens six feet tall have been observed, and the species has shown an unmistakable interest in eating meat.

A skull picture is provided; there is physical and DNA evidence as well as anecdotal. Unless the find proves to be some kind of chimp hybrid or subspecies, something quite possible from the initial DNA findings, it looks like we might well have to find more room in the primate family tree.
