    Humans are an advanced version of apes. I believe at some point of time in past this happened where Ape DNA + Alien DNA = Human DNA.

    Heh… been living in Tapanuli for more than 20 years, and it’s the first time I heard of Tapanuli orangutan. Well, the more you know.

    People don’t like to kill dogs, because they are so smart, and so close to us in many different ways… but we still slaughter these wonderful, much much smarter, most often completely human-like apes, who are literally our relatives, our close relatives…
    So infuriating…

    A bit of common misinformation, bonobos may not be known to kill one another as readily, but bonobos have certainly been observed harming each other grievously. Older bonobos or males in conflict are more prone to violence. No reason to think an abused bonobo couldn’t go on to be a tactical warrior and politician.

    There was a general in Africa in the 1970s that trained apes to use machetes…they can definitely use weapons

    I saw the special features and they mentioned that they were originally planning on using real apes for the movies. In the end they decided against it and went full CGI, for obvious reasons, lol
