Brought to you by the same people that produced Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, is their followup documentary Giganto: The Real King Kong. Whitewolf Entertainment and Doug Hajicek further the case that Gigantopithecus may be the ancestor of Bigfoot.
Giganto premieres on the History Channel Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 9 PM ET/8 PM CST and re-airs that night at 12 AM ET/11 PM CST.
An exploration of the Giganto (King Kong) legend using modern science, technology, and historic eyewitness accounts. Gigantopithecus (the Latin term for "Giant Ape") is believed to have existed 9 to 5-million years ago and supposedly was around 10-feet tall. Some fossil evidence shows that it may have lived in China or India. Scientists of varying fields will attempt to genetically connect Giganto to modern-day creatures from around the world. Could Bigfoot be a relative? Forensic testing, extensive scientific research, 3-D animation, and body reconstruction will help determine the true mystery behind this prehistoric ape.
