Re: walking with beasts fact files



While we're venting our peeves, I must say I am much bothered by the 
implication in the phylogram that there was some sort of unified "ape" lineage 
after the "hominids" branched off.  Maybe by "apes" they meant "gibbons" (which 
do account for the majority of living ape species)?  In that case, the "ape" 
and "hominid" lineages should have split way before the Pliocene.
