Quickie on Orangutan Bipedalism

Primatology.net has a sister site, if you don’t know already, and that’s Anthropology.net. This evening I put up a post there that may interest any one keen to primate locomotion and/or human evolution. The post is specifically on orangutan locomotion, specifically on how some researchers have observed a set of Sumatran Orangutans exhibit bipedal tendencies.

If this sounds kinda sorta familiar to this very recent post, “On the biophysics of Sumatran orangutan swaying,” it is!  The same researchers that observed orangutans cheat the system and choose limbs that help them sway the best have published a new finding on bipedalism amongst the same population.
