An ape as big as a polar bear, about 10 feet tall and weighing about 1200 pounds existed about 300,000 years from now. Thankfully, it no longer exists. The historical existence of this ape came to be known in 1935 when researchers found an unusually large molar being sold in a pharmacy in Hong Kong. This ape is called the Gigantopithecus and is believed to have lived in a region which is now India, China and Vietnam.
