“The hands of a Low Land Mountain Gorilla. Despite the fact that humans are bipedal and gorillas usually walk on all four limbs, the two species hands are closer in proportion to each other than those of any other ape, including Homo Sapiens closer relative, the tool using Chimpanzee. According to a recent study, one reason for this may be tied to the fact that both Gorillas and Humans use their hands (cupped in Gorillas, clenched in Humans) for ritualized aggressive displays and attack, unlike other apes. The similar structure may be an example of parallel evolution.” – Joe Wallace
