They really are not chimpanzees, although they seem a lot but larger. In fact, do not quite know what it is or how to classify these beings were discovered in the Congo in 2004.
Similar to chimpanzees but not as robust as the gorillas. Experts do not agree.
The Scientists are considering several theories about the apes, which are a new species, which are giant chimpanzees but behave like gorillas, or that are hybrid, the product of mating between gorillas and chimpanzees.
If, as suspected, it is a new species, the finding would be one of the most important in decades. But this will not know for sure until the DNA is analyzed.
And apparently, but for us these are "new" apes in the area and were well known to its inhabitants. They described the ferocious animals like monkeys and strong even able to kill lions.
And these chimpanzees weigh 100 kg (twice that chimpanzees we know) and very muscular. And I assure you that the muscles of these giant chimpanzees have twice the force that a bodybuilder with the same weight.
