Support your local PBS Member Station here: https://to.pbs.org/DonateEONS Probably twice the size of a modern gorilla, Gigantopithecus is the greatest great-ape that ever was. And for us fellow primates, there are some lessons to be learned in how it lived, and why it disappeared. Produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios: http://youtube.com/pbsdigitalstudios Thanks to Julio Lacerda at 252MYA.com and Carlos Eulefi for both of their wonderful reconstructions of Gigantopithecus.
