Climbing rocks for bipedalism of course also explains why barbary macaques in Gibraltar are bipedal. No, wait, they're not.

Again, no possible convergences to be found. Academia sure go to far extends to avoid talking about that Welsh elephant in the living room. Mom and dad, I'm disappointed in you.

Bizarre. Even more bizarre than the idea bipedalism evolved from a "linear build" from swimming and diving, in my view.

Algis
Waterside hypotheses of human evolution assert that selection from wading, swimming and diving and procurement of food from aquatic habitats have significantly affected the evolution of the lineage leading to Homo sapiens as distinct from that leading to Pan. (p118)
