Great Ape

Who is this charming fellow? He's Gigantopithecus blacki, and according to a researcher from our local McMaster University, he lived in China some 30,000 years ago. So, theoretically, the people who lived in the Chinese river valleys may have run into this nine-foot tall ape while foraging for food. It's unlikely that they would have sat down for dinner together though.
