The Great Apes are from the taxonomic group of hominids. This group includes gorillas, orangutans, bonobos, chimpanzees, and humans!
The great apes are large, tailless primates whose physical and mental qualities closely resemble many human traits. Most species are omnivorous, but fruit is the preferred food among many groups. Their young are born helpless, and they must be taken care of for long periods of time. Male apes are usually larger and stronger than female apes of the same species. Females typically give birth once every few years and have no distinct breeding season.
