Congo -- Gorillas aren't monkeys

Recommended Posts

(I know I'm late on this, but I figured someone would've pointed that out in time for the mini episode.)


At the risk of mass eye-rolling and sounding pretentious, I just wanted to point out that on the podcast, you guys kept calling the gorillas "monkeys," when they're actually considered apes. Main difference between the two is that apes don't have tails. (http://science.howstuffworks.com/zoology/mammals/monkeys-vs-apes.htm)


I know most people wouldn't care, but to me, it's kind of like calling a house cat a "tiger." Both are somewhat similar and evolutionarily closely related, but they're not the same.
