  Wildmen of the World - A Species Named From Footprints by Dr. Grover S. Krantz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Gigantopithecus fli was named by von Koenigswald in 1935 from a giant primate tooth he found in a Chinese drugstore.
Gigantopithecus does not show the extreme molarized design of the australopithecines, so its jaw would not be as relatively oversized.
Gigantopithecus jaws are exceptionally broad in the back; the horizontal rami diverge toward the rear to a degree unmatched by any other primate.

Gigantopithecus fli was, as its name implies, a gigantic ape from the Pleistocene of China.
The factors leading to the extinction of Gigantopithecus may be similar to those that threaten the panda, especially the fragmentation and loss of bamboo forest.
Although Gigantopithecus and early humans may have coexisted for a period of time in China and Southeast Asia, there is no evidence that they interacted, or that humans led to the ape's extinction.

Gigantopithecus was a genus of ape that existed from as long ago as 5 million years to as recently as 100 thousand years ago in what are today the countries of China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same timeframe and geographical location as early hominids, such as Homo erectus.
Although it is not known why Gigantopithecus died out, researchers believe that climate change and resource competition with better adapted species were the main reasons.
Some cryptozoologists have claimed that a race of gigantopithecines are the legendary primates known in various geographic locations as Bigfoot, Yowie, Yeren, Skunk Ape or Yeti.

Gigantopithecus is generally described as a panda-like bamboo eater.
So the thick molar enamel in Gigantopithecus would not be very useful for shearing bamboo leaves into an undifferentiated mush.
This proved that Gigantopithecus had a varied diet, although we still suspect that bamboo was its staple food.

 Xenophilia - Big Foot
Bigfoot is Gigantopithecus, a large ancient primate that has survived.
Gigantopithecus may be the largest known fossil primate, although its size is estimated only from surviving fragments of its teeth and jaws.
The former is known from Pleistocene deposits in China and Vietnam, as recent as 500,000 years old; the latter from Miocene deposits in the Siwalik hills of India from some eight million years earlier.

 Bigfoot: The Patterson Film & Australopithecus robustus by Gordon Strasenburgh
The common view in the West is that a less human, Gigantopithecus is the creature in question.
bilaspurensis molars (Simons, personal communication), and at least some of the Gigantopithecus fli molars, is transformed from the least likely product of convergence to a possible diagnostic trait at the subfamilial level, rather than at the generic level, as Robinson first hypothesized (1956).
However profitable the inclusion of Gigantopithecus among the hominids in terms of reclassifying previously puzzling data, I think it inappropriate and counter-productive to exceed the data and the scholarly discussion it has generated.

 The ape-ancestry myth (2)
Another species, known as Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis, is thought to have appeared in India between 6 and 13 million years ago, while Gigantopithecus fli is thought to have lived in Southeast Asia and to have gone extinct about 300 to 400 thousand years ago.
It is estimated that Gigantopithecus would have been 2.7 to 3.7 m (9 to 12 ft) tall if it stood on its hind legs, and weighed between 270 and 545 kg (600 to 1200 pounds); the largest gorilla is 1.8 m tall and weighs 135 to 180 kg.
In addition to the semi-human dentition of Gigantopithecus, he points out that the back of its lower jaw spreads much more widely than the jaw of a gorilla, suggesting that it carried its head vertically and was capable of erect, bipedal locomotion.

Gigantic hairy hominoids (most probably Gigantopithecus sp.) in southern Tibet (nyalmo, mi-chen-po), Sikkim and northern Bangladesh, from where, like the Neanderthal-like men, they spread into the Oriental Region, namely Burma (tok, kung-lu), China up to Manchuria (xiao, da-mao-ren), and North Vietnam (shan-tu).
Mammoths (Elephas primigenius) allegedly surviving in Siberia's taiga, an endless evergreen forest of pine and birch.
This form, generally thought to be related to the fossil gigantopithecines of Asia, Gigantopithecus fli of China and Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis of India, has, in fact, been formally assigned to Gigantopithecus fli by Grover S. Krantz (1986).

 NASI Report: Toward a Resolution of the Bigfoot Phenomenon (part 3)
The habitat of the Indian specimen of Gigantopithecus (named Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis), which flourished at least four million and possibly more than eight million years earlier, seems to have been somewhat like the habitat in Kwangsi.
The evidence now emerging is that Gigantopithecus was an eclectic feeder that concentrated on fruits as well as tough, fibrous vegetation.
Gigantopithecus is the only ape known to have become extinct during the Pleistocene epoch.

 Bigfoot Book Review: "The Sasquatch and Other Unknown Hominoids..." Markotic and Krantz...
Yet, in the previous chapter by Reed, G. bilaspurensis is suggested as more likely, a point to which Krantz does not even allude.
Krantz's discussion of Neanderthal seems to hang in space, as if he needed to express publicly his view that Neanderthal was less than human.
It is almost as if he is hedging his bets prior to his more recent pronouncement, in NARN, that Gigantopithecus fli is indeed Sasquatch.

During the past 25 years, Professor Vondra's research has focused on ancient fluvial (stream) systems as they apply to the stratigraphic documentation and relative age determination of the fossil remains of early man, his ancestors and associated faunas and the interpretation of paleoenvironments recorded by the strata in which these fossil remains are preserved.
He has provided a stratigraphic base and paleoenvironmental interpretations for such critical fossil localities as the Fayum Depression, Egypt (Aegyptopithecus zuesis), the Siwalik Hills, northern India (Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis), East Turkana, Kenya (Australopithecus africanus and Homo erectus), the central Afar, Ethiopia, (Australopithecus afarenis), and the Cagayan Valley, northern Luzon, Philippines.
In addition he as studied the fluvial facies models for complex plate boundary associations for two of the three possible plate boundary types, the convergent (collisional) and divergent (rift) plate boundaries and his paleoenvironmental interpretations of critical fossil localities have broadened the understanding of the Cenozoic history of Africa, Asia, and North America.

Gelvin BR Multivariate analyses, supplemented by univariate statistical methods, of measurements from mandibular tooth crown dimensions and the mandible of Gigantopithecus fli, G. bilaspurensis, Plio-Plelstocene hominids, Homo erectus, and seven Neogene ape species from the genera Proconsul, Sivapithecus, Ouranopithecus, and Dryopithecus were used to assess the morphometric affinities of Gigantopithecus.
The results show that Gigantopithecus displays affinities to Ouranopithecus and to the hominids, particularly the Plio-Plelstocene hominids, rather than to the apes.
Gigantopithecus Blacki teeth have been argued to closer to Orangutans by some and closer to Hominids by others.

 Bigfoot - Kryptozoologie-Lexikon
Die gängigste Theorie geht davon aus, das es sich um einen Relikthominiden handeln könne, also eine bis heute überlebende Art einer weiteren Menschenrasse neben dem modernen Menschen (Homo sapiens sapiens), eventuell einer abgetrennten Linie des Homo erectus oder der Neandertaler (Homo neanderthalensis).
Eine weitere These geht, aufgrund der Körpergröße, davon aus, das es sich um eine Reliktpopulation des Gigantopithecus (Gigantopithecus fli, Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis) handeln könne, einer anderen als ausgestorben geltenden Vorfahrenslinie des Menschen, welche mit etwa 3 Metern Körpergröße gewaltige Ausmaße erreichen konnte.
Eine weitere These geht davon aus, dass die meisten Sichtungen des Bigfoot auf Verwechslungen mit Grizzlybären beruhen, welche sich ebenfalls aufrichten und auf den Hinterbeinen gehen können.

Not necessarily, they would most likely be the descendants of one of the Gigantopithecus species (G. fli, G. bilaspurensis, or G. Giganteus) which are known from some remains recovered from Asia.
The size is certainly similar but no post-cranial elements of Gigantopithecus species have been recovered so it is not known for sure whether or not they were indeed upright/bipedal as most reports of Bigfoot contend.
Neanderthals were quite short (shorter than us) and the reported descriptions of Bigfoot don't sound anything like Neanderthals.
