The board seems to automatically resize 800 x 600 images down to something smaller.

Yep, the wonders of modern internet surfing. At work my workstation has two monitors. It's great, more windows open and moving the mouse/cursor smoothly across the monitors. Would like to have such here, at home.

Common name: Gelada Baboon

Technical name (Species): Theropithecus Gelada

Subspecies: Northern gelada (Theropithecus gelada gelada) / Eastern gelada or southern gelada or Heuglin's gelada (Theropithecus gelada obscurus)

etymology (theropithecus): is derived from the Greek thero (beast, wild beast) + pithecus (ape)

etymology (Gelada): 1835–45; < Amharic Äʾällada; perhaps akin to the Cushitic word for the baboon; compare Oromo jaldeessa

discovered: late 19th century

region: Africa > Ethiopia (Ethipian Highlands)

Geladas are large, stocky primates with dark brown to buff coarse pelage and with dark brown faces and lighter, pale eyelids. The tail is shorter than the body and head and has a tuft at the end. The forearms and extremities are almost black. In adult males, a long, heavy, cape of hair is present on the back. Between subspecies, T. g. gelada usually has predominantly pale brown to dark brown pelage, while T. g. obscurus is darker, ranging from dark brown to almost black. The face has no hair, and is shorter and higher than in other baboons. In addition, the snout is more chimp-like than baboon-like. Most characteristic of geladas is the hairless hourglass-shaped pink or red area of skin located on the chest. In females, this skin patch is surrounded by pearl-like knobs of skin. Geladas have pronounced ischial callosities. On average, males are larger than females and marked sexual dimorphism is characteristic of the species, with females averaging around two-thirds the size of males. The species has highly opposable index fingers and thumbs, the most so of any of the primates. In addition, its fingers are short and substantially built, allowing them to be used efficiently for digging. Geladas have specialized dentition adapted for their highly graminivorous diet, which is highly abrasive to teeth.

myths: i' m pretty sure there are, but as usual I wasn't able to find any.

particularities: the snout is more chimp-like than baboon-like, hairless hourglass-shaped pink or red area of skin located on the chest. In females. Grin lips agression.

What...?! Now you're telling me the females and even the males of these suposedly beasty apes (montage of course), have a natural sort of necklace brooch like with women necklines, as if they were wearing some kind of a sheperd's cloak ! And if it wasn't enough you're telling me these Vincent's Beauty and the Beast facelike animals even grin their mouths deforming completely their mouths for domination or agression purposes, like if they were some toothed demons or wraiths or... whatever? Lions with Hellboy faces and necklines wearing cloaks... .... C'mmmmon!

The Japanese giant salamander.

The National Geographic guy even tasted their mucous skin to "propery" analyse its venom percentage...

Wondering that these dwarf version creatures were considered to born from fire at medieval times (the reason why salamander is also an object like a fireplace in Portugal).

The most impossible primate of all next to another impossible primate:

The one on the right was up to 10' tall and may have weighed up to 1200 lbs.? Yeah, right.

Could Stuart Freeborn (Chewbacca, Master Yoda costumes and puppetry) be involved in PGF?

Freeborn had just come off of a two year or more assignment doing the 2001 Apes. There's be no reason for him to wok cheap, so if he were involved, he'd likely be expensive. But his suit work for the 2001 apes is quie different from Patty, so it's unlikely he could have been involved.

No, just improbable. ;)

What seems impossible is that the "third chimpanzee" could evolve into something that can do this

Thanks, but I think we're getting way off topic now.

And it is quite a fine topic actually, with the strange stuff people have posted.

I thought our own species should get a nod. We're pretty amazing, actually.

Here's one:

Please LAL, only real animals, obviously this is a stuffed hybrid between a lobster and a rabit, like the marmaid hoaxes.

This is a serious thread, please...

The boto is the largest river dolphin, weighing up to 180 kg (400 lb) with a length up to 2.6 m (8.5'). Most adult botos are pink, although some have a darker back or are partially gray. Although the boto's eyes appear small and inconspicuous, they are actually, in the skull, as large as those of marine dolphins. Thus the boto can see well. On the other hand, it can also rely on its sonar as it swims through a murky flooded forest. Its bulbous forehead ends in a long, tube-shaped beak bearing sensory bristles that allow it to feel for food in a river’s depths. The pectoral fins are broad and paddle-like; the flukes are broad and triangular; and it lacks a prominent dorsal fin, possessing instead a low ridge along the back. The boto uses fresh waters of all types as habitat but is not found in estuaries or other saline waters. It appears to favor areas such as confluences, sharp bends, and sandbars, particularly the deeper waters in these areas. In the central Amazon basin, large changes in water levels affect the local distribution of botos. A significant increase in water level during the flood season leads to the inundation of large areas of forest. Botos move out of the main river into channels and small lakes and then into the forest itself, swimming among the trees, as the rising waters flood the forest. The boto is a generalist feeder. Its diet is known to include over 50 species of smaller fish, as well as freshwater crabs and river turtles. Feeding is usually done close to shore, in shallow bays, in flooded forests, or at confluences. The boto is a slow-moving animal that usually swims at 2.4 - 5.1 km/h (1.5 - 3.2 mi/h) with bursts of more than 23 km/h (14 mi/h). Its dives usually last less than 1 - 2 minutes. The boto is mainly solitary, with less than 1/4 of sightings involving pairs (usually a mother and calf). Larger groups are rarely seen, although loose aggregations have been observed at feeding areas. The boto occurs throughout much of the Amazon and Orinoco watersheds, being found almost

mythology (encantado):

The Brazilian term is used for creatures who come from a paradisiacal underwater realm called the Encante. It may refer to spirit beings or shapeshifting snakes, but most often it designates dolphins with the ability to turn into humans. Although belief in them is starting to wane, there are still plenty of South Americans who believe in their existence ardently, and claim to have seen and interacted with them, or even that they are related to them. They share the most of the same themes and features as the fairies of European folklore. Most commonly, the stories involve a type of freshwater dolphin which lives in the Amazon River called the Boto. It is larger and more primitive-looking than the other type of Amazon dolphin, the Tucuxi. The stories also involve snakes, whose kinds can vary from the common type to coral snakes. (read Dance of the dolphin: transformation and disenchantment in the Amazonian imagination).

Let me guess, the bump of this thing's head is in fact a sonar as with sperm wales nose's device... and this thing being so primitive it even looks like a... modern ichthyosaurus. Yeah right....! Hey, perhaps it even resembles like Return of the Jedi's Max Rebo Band but in blue version....! Get a life will ya?
