Newly Discovered Ape

The many Ishmael fans who are also gorilla fans will be interested to know that, according to a report in the New Scientist, a giant ape unlike any previously seen has been found in a remote area of central Africa. Wildlife experts believe the ape, which stands over six feet tall and shares characteristics with both chimpanzees and gorillas, may be a new species of primate. Villagers in the far north of the Democratic Republic of Congo say the apes can be ferocious and are capable of killing lions. But unlike gorillas, which charge upon seeing a threat, the new apes turn around and silently slip away into the forest when encountered. The apes live hundreds of miles from known gorilla populations, and have a diet similar to that of chimpanzees. Scientists are trying to determine if it is a formerly unknown species, or if it is possibly a giant chimpanzee with the behavior of a gorilla.
