Gigantopithecus is just an example of a non-hominine fossil which I known
exsists. What I'm mainly looking for is info on chimp and gorilla fossil.
Are there any? Part of my paper has to be on the popular misconception of
Bigfoot as a missing link and Gigantopithecus may enter into that because
many true believers think Bigfoot=Gigantopithecus.
