Not much is known about the Bili Ape; but there is speculation that they may be chimpanzee/gorilla hybrids.
Of note, gorillas are the second closest relative to humans after chimpanzees (including bonobos). AND chimpanzees are closer to humans than they are to gorillas. If chimpanzees and gorillas can make hybrids, then there's no reason to rule out the possibility of a "humanzee."
Though, erasmus, I'll give you credit before you even say it - we don't even know for a fact whether or not Bili Ape is a chimpanzee/gorilla hybrid to be making that argument in the first place.
I know this, but it is something to think out.
Agreed with the scope of extra investigative analysis, however I still fail to see how this would lead to back to classification of humans based upon physical features and the use of such classification to bring back 18th racism which essentially is what it is.
