What does /an/ think of the other great apes - chimps, bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans?
>>
>>2936455
S tier: Orangs, Gorillas
A tier: Gibbons
D tier: Chimps
F tier: Bonobos
>>
I’ve always been curious if bonobos are interested in interspecies sex.
>>
Primates are disgusting, ugly creatures that people pretend to like just so they appear sophisticated or wise.
Orangutans are ok though.
>>
>>2936580
That’s a lot of opinion and bare assertion there.

>>
>>2936605

Anon prefers more sophisticated animals such as dogs, that prefer to eat the shit instead of throwing it.
>>
>>2936869
Gorillas and orangs are typically pretty chill though. Chimps and maybe bonobos are more unpredictable/dangerous, kinda like humans desu

lel primates don't even have strength, people seem to think that because primates = strong in proportion to us that they are strong in comparison to everything.

Gorillas are legitimately strong though. Maybe not in comparison to bears or whatever but still.

They've fucked chimps in captivity.

I love gorillas and orangutans.
I'm indifferent to bonobos.
I loathe chimpanzees.
>>
Gorillas are based, would like to meet one. Orangs not really sure, haven't read about them that much. Chimps are kind of fucked and bonobos are cool but a lot of their reputation seems unfounded, seems like they still wouldn't hesitate to rip you apart if they perceived you as a threat.
>>
>>2936561
Gibbons are lesser apes mi amigo

Question that's been on my mind. You know the way we traded off ape strength for our intelligence, well now that we have basically unlimited access to food would we possibly be able to sustain both?

>>
>>2940228
What I mean is was the trade off unnecessary? I don't think we could regain it but could we have kept both with the food we have now?
>>
Pretty rad animals but I dont feel like most captive kept ones arent maintained properly
Wouldnt want to be anywhere near a pissed off one though
>>
>>2940267
I'd argue gorillas are less scary than bonobos. Sure they're bigger and stronger, but they tend to be calm and will usually warn you if they're pissed. Bonobos are closer to chimps than anything, so they're probably not as predictable.

Gorillas pretty much destroy the whole chimp vs bonobo debate used by some to argue for male vs female led societies.

Just because you see them as part of your body doesn't mean they are. Besides, what tool could an average untrained human use to kill a gorilla or even a chimp? A spear perhaps but the chimp would probably dodge, guns aren't easy in the hands of the untrained.
The only advantage is in throwing shit but even then what can one person throw at them before the ape closes in and pummels you to dust?
>>
>>2944473
Not only that, but the average human can't produce those tools. They can use one that someone else has made but then that involves the effort of more than one human which makes the fight unfair.

Chimp could probably grab a quarterstaff off you desu mate. I've seen spears grabbed by opponents before. It's not as easy as people often think though.

I think they're awesome but I prefer the dead ones.
Orangutans are beautifully colored and can be very friendly and intelligent (sometimes). Gorillas have the coolest looking skeleton in the animal kingdom, Bonobos are a bunch of degenerate, disgusting asswipes but Kanzi is the only good one. Of course chimpanzees are shit-flingers, but they are also really amazing anatomically and have very frightening behaviors and noises.
I like SCARY animals, that is why I like the great apes, their intellect is limited compared to Orcas, Elephants, African Grey Parrots, and even Spotted Hyenas.

Well since you're not one of them and they don't understand your nuances, it's gonna be a lot easier to look threatening, and they don't really have empathy. They eat monkeys ass first while they're alive and screaming in pain so they don't really care about doing it to you.

Chimpanzees are the worst fucking animal on this planet though, don't fucking argue. And I'm sure that some cunt is about to respond NUH UH DA REEL WORS AMINAL IS MAN, well fuck you because chimpanzees are just humanity with the safety off. Can you imagine one of those face eating cunts learning how to work a firearm? It would slaughter everything, eat the faces and genitalia of everything it kills and then accidentally shoot itself in the fucking face because it gets so goddamn angry it tries to eat the genitalia of the gun.

I miss Nugget, didn't know you had to separate mother hens from the jealous spinster cunts.

>>2936455
Hate chimps. They'll rip your dick or face off when angered. Bonobos are hippies and I'm happy we are closer related than chimps. Gorillas are meh. They need to use that great strength to kill the people that hunt them. Orangutans are bro tier.

I'm gonna share my favorite scientific study since it had to do with apes and is fucking hilarious.

A researcher once tested if chimps could recognize their reflection as them. After the chimps seemed unable to he declared chimps were too stupid to recognise their own reflection. This angered another researcher. He theorised they could if given time since humans like babies and the blind who regain their site don't automatically understand mirrors and grow to understand them.

The researcher placed a mirror in front of a chimp exhibit. He waited a few weeks until they seemed used to the mirror. He then nocked one out, drew a red line on its forehead with a marker, and put it back with the others in front of the mirror. When the chimp woke up it looked in the mirror. It touched the spot above its eyebrow where the red mark was thus proving they recognized their own reflection. So a researcher nocked out a chimp and drew on its face for science.

AFAIK the trade-off was strength vs dexterity.

It's more that we traded the arm strength for hand-eye coordination and throwing strength, as well as leg strength. Chimps are actually very weak at throwing. I wish I could find the source, but someone measured the strength and accuracy of a chimp throwing a baseball and it was roughly equivalent to a human 5 year-old.

They are genetically engineered in labs tho, naturally that would never happen, they are not compatible genetically, and the offspring from the lab ones are all infertile.
