Gigantopithecus was a prehistoric ape that lived around nine million years ago. Although known only from fossil teeth and jaw bones, it is estimated to grow up to three meters, which makes it the largest known primate. It was a close relative to the orangutan. It is unknown whether Gigantopithecus stood upright like a human or walk on four legs like most other apes, though most assume the latter. Cryptozoologists speculate, the Gigantopithecus might still exist as the Yeti, however according to most paleontologists there is no evidence it survived the extinction nor that the Yeti is even real, let alone it being a living Gigantopithecus.
Gigantopithecus is an animal that can be created in Jurassic Park: Builder in the Glacier Park. It is a limited offer animal, available only during a set time period. It is portrayed as a carnivore when in reality, it was an herbivore that occasionally ate insects.
