Climate change wiped out the King Kong

For many years the existence of a very large monkey, largest of the gorillas, was the subject of mythological and… cinematic approach.
But some jaws and several teeth, which have been identified by the mid-20th century and then led the scientists to conclude that in the distant past lived monkeys that had a height of 2-3 meters. Named Γιγαντοπίθηκοι and a new study now reveals the reason that no longer exist.
Everything we knew
The study of the few findings available to the experts has shown that the Γιγαντοπίθηκοι occurred probably before about 9 cm. years, and disappeared before for about 100 thousand years. All of the findings associated with the Γιγαντοπιθήκους have been identified in regions of India, China and Vietnam.
An international team of scientists collaborated with researchers of the Centre for Human Evolution and Παλαιοπεριβάλλοντος Ζέκενμπεργκ and specialists of the Research Institute Ζέκενμπεργκ in Germany in an effort to reveal more information about the Γιγαντοπίθηκο.
What have we learned
Although the researchers emphasize that we do not know yet the exact proportions of the Γιγαντοπίθηκου even if it walked on two or four legs, however, believe that they can certify that it was a herbivorous animal that lived exclusively in the forests.
