Carpenter-Ape (click on image to enlarge)
I'm back with another rare discovery. Amazingly enough there is a cross-breed of Mountain Gorilla and Carpenter-Ant called "Carpenter-Apeius Creepeus" also known as "Carpenter-Ape" for short. This bizarre creature is found only in deepest Africa where it builds elegant structures once thought to be the work of the native men of that region. This one-of-a-kind picture was taken on June 17, 2002 while I was traveling through Africa looking to get a life. I never found one.
