Basic Information

Anatomy

Giant Apes are humanoid meaning that they walk in an upright position on two legs and have two hands free to manipulate objects. However, they are much more robust than Humans. Their neck is also shorter than a Human's. From a distance it may look as they have no neck.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Giant Apes are omnivores with a preference for meat. They hunt with their bare hands or using simple wooden spears. Most of the time they eat deer, boars and smaller animals such as squirrels and other rodents.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Giant Apes prefer being alone and their groups are limited to 2-4 people and they are only their closest family. As there is very little difference in strength between males and females, members of groups cooperate in all tasks and there is no gender division of roles.

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Giant Apes can be found all over the world, on every continent. In every place they live, they prefer to avoid human-populated areas and live in deep forests. In some regions Humans don't even know that Giant Apes live near them.

Civilization and Culture

Average Technological Level

Giant Apes live a simple life. They don't use modern human technology. Instead, they rely on basic things to survive. They use wooden spears to hunt. They cook on fire and sleep under the stars.

Common Dress Code

Sasquatch don't use a lot of clothing. Their hair provides them with enough warmth during the cold months and it covers enough of the private body parts. Sometimes, when they want to look better, they can put a piece of cloth arounf their waist and put on a simple jacket.
