Apparently not, then.
I actually have too much happening right now, in real life. Plus I don't think that's a very interesting aspect, anyway.
I will look into it more, at some point, but I don't think the topic automatically needs a deep-dive into folktale mythology.
Plus, such folktales would be most relevant in Africa, in such villages of humans and monkeys coexisting, which is quite removed from where I live.
However, I'll just point out that tales of bigfoot / ape-men / yeti / etc. have been around forever, in just about every part of the world. We have
bigfoot stories and videotapes from North America... We have Tibetan priests talking about their abominable snowman, for centuries or thousands of
yrs. And these could be an ape hybrid creature.
Whether the rural African villages specifically have a similar mythology, I think they must, but I'm really not going to dive into the topic of
folktales at the moment...
Plus we should consider that there are myths about practically anything & everything... I know that African villages have tales of a dinosaur that
lives in one of their rivers (and occasionally attacks people & animals)... There are reports of pterodactyls... There are stories of moth-men, of
all things lol. The idea of monkey-men stories is less strange than a lot of folktales out there...
