Coincedence is an amazing thing, being as i am currently studying anthropology the classification of primates is somthing i had to go over in depth and there is something that struck me as funny, the name pongidae is derived from the genus "pongo" from the oranutangs and the only reason that the chimps and gorillias are placed in pongidae is to seperate them more from humans. Stupid self centered anthropologists making it more complicated for we in the studious professions. Oh well nothing to be done. (we would like to appologize for the poor spelling that may be in evidence in the above post, but i really cannot spell its rather tragic.)
