Ashes, the Hairless Monkey

Ashes is a 13 year old chimpanzee that has literally no hair on its body. When he was born, Ashes had a beautiful fur, but by the time he turned one, he was completely bald. Looking at his arms I can understand why a chimp could easily rip a human’s arms off if it wanted to, he’s just a huge pile of muscles.

    You can tell how closely humans and monkeys are related by this. It looks just like a human :)

  • Ramin Posted on February 25, 2008

    Male chimps are even more muscular. Now you understand why chimps are so strong.

    This chimpanzee is not “Ashes”. It is a female named Cinder. She lives at the St. Louis zoo and was born there in 1994

    Sadly Cinder (not Ashes) the bald chimp died on Feb 15, 2009. Go to the St. Louis Zoo website for information.

    I ALWAYS KNEW THAT HUMANS AND APES WERE COUSINS OF EACHOTHER. THIS JUST FUTHER PROVES THE SIMILARITIES, THE PROOF IS RIGHT HERE.
    MANY PEOPLE I KNOW FEEL THAT ITS WRONG TO THINK THAT WE ARE RELATED TO APES BECAUSE THEY FEAR THAT IT MIGHT CONTRADICT THEIR RELIGOUS BELIEFS. IN THE SCIENTIFIC WORLD WE HUMANS ARE ALSO REFERED TO AS “THE GREAT APES”. ITS UNBELIEVABLE THAT AS INTELIGENT AS WE ARE HOW CAN OVERLOOK THIS.

  • Tim Kozusko Posted on April 18, 2009

    It’s an ape, not a monkey! Monkeys have tails, apes do not. The difference is not trivial.

  • HappyVealCow Posted on April 20, 2009

    Homology does not equal morphology

  • Evolved Posted on April 20, 2009

    Any Which Way But Loose. Clint Has a pet Chimp named Clyde. Or was it a Orangutan. It tore a car apart in the middle of the movie.

    The photographs of Cinder is a good reason you wouldn’t have a chimpanzee as a pet. She is totally stronger then a human. I read somewhere that they murder each other in the wild. If you give her a funny look, she might rip your head off.

    Humans and Chimps share 98% of the DNA. A human and a tree share about 25%. All creatures on planet earth branch off a common ancestor 2.5 billion years ago. The very first thing was a sort slimey substance that grew into a pile. It was so abundant that is made our atmosphere oxygen rich. There are fossile remains of it the slimey substance. Organic matter can be recreated in a laboratory. Not exactly life but it is lifes building blocks. It is the part that DNA likes. According to an episode of the Universe Astrobiology.

    The artical says that he is a monkey, but that is incorrect he is an ape. Monkeys have tails and many other differences, apes do not.
