[Fr.] A West African ape which is more like man in some ways than any other ape. When full grown it is 4 feet high. It has no hair on the hands and face, and none on its large rounded ears. Its arms are shorter than the orang's, but fall below the knee. Its habit in walking is to bend forward and rest on the hands. When tamed it has been taught to eat food with a spoon at a table, but in the wild state it lives among the branches of trees near the ground.
