Was the last Great Ape ever photographed before the species extinction actually in 1983? The great ape was originally thought to be extinct over 100,000 years ago during the Pleistocene ice age. They weighed over 1,000 lbs, stood nearly 10 feet tall, and were very smart. There were no known predators that were a threat to them during their existence.
Scientists believe it was drastic change in climate that led to their extinction. The Great Ape strictly ate fruits, which became very scarce during the Pleistocene ice age. This possibly led to their quick extinction, as they were unable to adapt to eating leaves and grass like their smaller relatives.
A viral picture allegedly from 1983, shows man standing with the alleged Last Great Ape. This suggest that Great Ape went extinct in 1983. Take a look.
As aforementioned Great Apes had very high intelligence levels, which is why it seems to be posing and looking at the camera in the photo above. It also has all the features of a Great Ape including the bronze colored fur.
Theoretically with the help of human care a Great Ape would have been able to survive in 1983 with an abundance of food being provided.
Was the last Great Ape ever photographed before extinction in 1983? The world may never know, but there is definitely alleged photo evidence.
