Caption: Extinct giant gorilla (Gigantopithecus sp.). Artist's impression of the extinct giant gorilla Gigantopithecus facing two prehistoric humans. This mammal lived between 6 million and 100,000 years ago and is the largest primate that ever lived. Fossil evidence is restricted to teeth and jaw remains, but show that it had a mainly bamboo diet. Gigantopithecus would stand 3 metres tall if upright and weigh up to 500 kilograms, 3 times larger than modern-day gorillas (Gorilla gorilla).
