This was submitted on Twitter last year by Mark Witton.

A scientifically accurate representation of how a giant ape might look like if it adapted to Kong's size.

From my point of view, that's a very interesting interpretation of a giant ape. To a lot of people, it might look silly, but that's how nature works. Scaling up an organism to a much larger size is much more complicated because certain adaptations are necessary for maintaining large sizes. Giant animals have specific adaptations to their lifestyles.

So, there would be no building smashing, shrugging off gunfire, or climbing skyscrapers etc as Mark Witton adds. A lot of Hollywood writers nowadays say "**** all that" and write whatever they want.

Still, I'm curious about how Godzilla Vs Kong will turn out.

Looks like one of those giant ground sloths from the ice age.

I doubt scaling up a gorilla to King Kong's size would turn it into what Witton created. We already have examples of apes reaching large sizes but maintaining their general structure--like Gigantopithecus. This is as Gojira said above me more akin to a Megatherium than a massive gorilla. I don't like this design at all.

Good grief.

I sure am glad Hollywood writers say "**** all that" because that looks and sounds as uninteresting as all hell.

These are cinematic beasts, not scientifically accurate animals. Let monsters be monsters.

Yeah I agree, as interesting as these concepts are, they would make for a terribly dry character on film. Looks like some prehistoric mammal, an over-sized cow if anything haha. Gonna upvote regardless though since this is rather interesting.

I like the design of this Kong but more for a speculative evolution story.

Looks good for something else, but it's not Kong. The brown fur, bipedal stance, strongman physique, that is Kong's unique design and makes him stand out from his real life counterparts.

 Tis an interesting take on what a giant ape may look like at Kong's size, in the film he weighs 158 , you cant really be a bipedal mammal at that point you're going to be a quadruped if you want to support such mass

It looks unrecognizable. I thought that it was just a picture of one of the Indricotheriums (now called Paraceratherium) from BBC's Walking with Beasts (or Walking with Prehistoric Beasts, depending on the version), and then when I read what it was, I couldn't believe it. It looks that unrecognizable and ugly.

J. Robert It looks like almost as unrecognizable as the realistic Kong. (See my comment above to see what I mean. [Yes, I am also MinecraftDinoKaiju. We are the same person.]) He looks more like a crocodilian. It looks great, though. Nice job.

I actually really like this design for a Kaiju, it reminds me of other classic western Kaiju like Rhedosaurus and the giant behemoth who tend to try and be more realistic than the more godzilla tokusatsu style Kaiju, I could see this realistic Kong design being a character all its own if not Kong, that being said I totally understand the need to throw out science in favour of style or to make fiction work, I could see this realistic Kong fighting the original 1933 King Kong on skull island

J. Robert Now it looks more like the modern rendition of a Postosuchus. Es muy bueno y divertido. (Yes, I am actually bilingual in both English and Spanish. Surprised?) Nice job.

J. Robert De nada. Soy latino tambien. Don't tell anyone I said that, though. (Even though it's the comments section.)
