Before you click the link you should know that the image may disturb some people.
I was sent the image linked below and there appears to be some morphological anomalies present in this infant primate.
I am posting this in the hopes that someone has seen more complete images of this or to see if someone can identify it.
Things to consider:
It could look larger and more muscular than it is due to the camera angle.
It looks as if it has just been born ; red pigment on the skin(blood) and purple discolouration of the nails.
It seems very well muscled, too much muscle mass for an infant human , orangutan or gorilla .
It has a tail.
It is lying in a what appears to be a sterile bassinet.
It has orange fur and white skin.
There is an absence of "Baby Fat" : look closely at the thights and buttocks, the wrinkles there.
It appears to be a quadroped, like a gorilla, you can see the large bump at the top of the hip , gorillas have buttock like muscles on their sides.
Orangutans are anthropoid apes,all anthropoid apes are tailless.
Anyway I thought the image was a "good puzzle" and that someone in this part of the forum would find it interesting.
