An ancient Chinese tomb, possibly that of the First Emperor's grandmother, has produced a skull from a previously unknown, extinct, species of gibbon.

Military significance unknown, but if you've always wanted to model a Qin commander with a small ape sitting on his (or her) shoulder, now's your chance.

The scientific name should be the Euell Theophilus Gibbon.

The other apes are sure to follow this one. Just looked up how many species of gibbon exist. Along the way I found out that all apes are endangered with some types of gorilla and orangutan critically. Sad.

And Dan, I know that you know that the creature on Geoffrey Rush's shoulder is a Capuchin.

Yes. It's a capuchin. But a baby or some extinct pygmy Gibbon would work too.
