Animator Compares Extinct And Modern Primates By Size

There are so many primates in this world, us humans included in that category.

We’ve got loads of primate cousins – some of which are now extinct.

But the interesting thing about all these different primates and their extinct ancestors is that they all look completely different – especially in the size department.

You’ve got teeny tiny ones coupled with very large ones. To give a scale between the different sizes is one animated video that people are finding quite interesting.

Animator WTD created an anthropoid 3D animation that compares the many sizes of today’s primates, as well as their long-gone ancestors.

The list includes such simians such as monkeys, chimpanzees, baboons, apes, gorillas, and many more.

It’s easy to picture some of the animals individually, but seeing how they compare side-by-side offers a unique look.
