Upright-Walking Gorilla Hints At Our Terrible Future

Oh sure, this gorilla's minder acts blasé and dismissive over his charge's method of perambulation, but don't be fooled: The gorillas are evolving. Soon they will all be walking upright, and we will be forced to toil in their banana mines until Charlton Heston comes from the past to liberate us. This guy is just hoping that if he keeps quiet about it for now he will get some kind of supervisory role in the new regime. Consider yourselves warned.

The Great Primate Wars of 2012© will leave all stooped over and humbled.

Oh, by the time they take over, there won't be any bananas left.

It sounds to me like it's the meerkats who need to worry.

Actually, all great apes can mimic to various degrees the terrestrial locomotion of all other apes. They have the muscles for it, they just aren't always very coordinated (eg: Try walking on knuckles. You can do it, but you're also likely bang your head on the corner of the coffee table.) (Thank you for listening, sometimes I forget my degree actually does read "BS Biological Anthropology,")
