Bipedal Ape: Nothing New

The embedded video is a presentation by Susan Savage-Rumbaugh, she has been researching Bonobos for decades. Bonobos are a species of ape long misclassified as chimps. Although similar in size and color, they are different in almost every other way, more intelligent, socially less aggressive, less territorial,and biomechanically built for upright walking.

Always trying to think outside the box, BfRLC believes we could gain a great deal more knowledge about Bigfoot from this modern species than from the long extinct Australopithecus.

Using 3d animation the embedded video compares bipedal locomotion of the Bonobos along side modern humans, chimps and of course Australopithecus. If that doesn't peak your interest the video also shows Bonobos playing Pac-Man on an old-school coin-op arcade console.
