The film “The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”, which is a remake of “Planet of the Apes” from 1968, brought the great monkeys back into the spotlight, making them the main heroes of the battle with humans.

According to the film’s storyline, these super-intelligent monkeys conquer the human race through their physical and intellectual superiority over humans.

One of the aspects that chimpanzees , gorillas , and orangutans from Planet of the Apes take advantage of is the power that clearly surpasses the power of man: they throw people at a distance of one meter, smash skulls and bones with their bare hands, they make jumps that seem to have very little in common with the laws of physics (especially in Tim Burton’s 2001 remake).

In the movie “The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” the power of primates has been drastically reduced compared to previous movies, and the jumps have been reduced to get as close to reality as possible while maintaining a certain degree of spectacle.

Looking at the movie, the question arises: how much physical strength does ape have above the physical strength of man?

In fact, it is very difficult to give the right answer, because there are not many detailed scientific studies on the real physical strength of monkeys. But let’s try to understand this question anyway.

Let’s start with chimpanzees. In 1924, with the help of a dynamometer, it was possible to establish that a chimp weighing 74 kg with one hand can apply a force equal to 384 kg.

The average person with the same weight shows a much smaller result – 95 kg.

Another chimpanzee, who weighed about 61 kg, generated 571 kg of force.

A little later it was also found that when lifting weights at waist level chimpanzees can lift at least 250 kg without much effort.

Thus, an adult chimpanzee is 2-3 times stronger than a man.

And this force is quite enough to cause a person quite serious damage. However, it is clearly not enough to throw away a person at 4-5 meters with one blow, as shown in the feature film about monkeys.

However, experts who took part in the work on this film explain that in a state of excitement and with a powerful surge of adrenaline, the power of animals can increase several times.

Now let’s talk about gorillas. A male mountain gorilla weighs more than 200 kg, reaches a height of about 1.7 meters, and has a muscular structure that is much more powerful than man.

Gorillas have a more developed musculature in the upper part of the body, as opposed to humans.

This is mainly because they use their hands to move. Also, they often take heavy objects in their hands to protect their flock.

It should also be noted that gorilla hands are about 30 cm longer than human hands.

Based on some studies, scientists suggest that the force of gorilla hands is at least 3-5 times higher than that of an adult man of the same weight.

The “planet of monkeys” is not only a deadly force but also spectacular jumps in the air. Can a monkey jump ten meters long in real life?

In 2006, a group of Dutch researchers measured the ability of vertical jumping bonobo, one of the most similar to primates chimpanzees, although smaller and relatively less muscular.

All the bonobos were able to overcome the height of 70 centimeters without any problems, while a person from a place can jump up by 30-40 centimeters.

But gibbons can jump to a height of more than 3 meters and overcome the distance of 10 meters between one tree and another.

However, it should be noted here that they can demonstrate such results not only because of their special skeletal and muscle structure but also because of their lower body weight than that of chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans.

However, the fact that monkeys can theoretically break a person’s skull with their bare hands or jump 10 meters is not important for us, ordinary mortals, because in our world “ball is ruled” by humans.

Orangutan Strength

How is Orangutan Strength and Dangerous? is an interesting question. A curious, but not overly concerned, a person from Singapore would like to know. The orangutans live almost exclusively in the forest. They find their food sources in the canopy and make their nests there, too. They use highways of tree branches to travel from one location to another. During the day, they rarely come down to the ground, except for a few occasions when they come down to feed, or when they are so heavy.

The arms of orangutans are longer than their legs. They can stretch up to 213 cm (7 ft.) when fully stretched out. Their arm muscles are very strong, which helps them swing from tree to tree. Their shoulders are much wider than their hips, and they have a wide base of muscular strength. They can carry their entire body weight on their large arms, and their arm muscles are extremely durable.

Orangutan strength and size are a key part of their lifestyle. They spend most of their time in trees, so they’re strong and durable. The strength in their arms is so great that they can swing from branch to branch, and their arm muscles are more than seven times stronger than a human. They can even lift 500 pounds. Their arm muscles are also incredibly sturdy, and their strong grips can even carry the orangutan’s weight while it is swinging.

While orangutans are the most gentle apes, they don’t fight very often. They’re solitary, but they’re still strong compared to other apes. An adult male orangutan weighs 100 to 220 pounds and is five feet tall, with seven-foot-long arms. These traits are necessary for them to survive in the wild, but they don’t like being disturbed.

Orangutan arms are longer than their legs. The adult male orangutan’s arm muscles are seven times longer than his leg muscles, making it possible to swing from tree to branch. Additionally, orangutans’ arms are wide than their hips, which allows them to carry their body’s weight and a tree. This makes it easy for orangutans to move through the forest using their strong arms.

Despite being one of the most intelligent of all apes, orangutan males rarely fight. They typically live alone, but they are not weak. The orangutan’s arms and legs are sturdy and carry their body weight. They also have a six-foot-long head and a seven-foot-long tail. Their limbs are so long and flexible that they can swing from tree to tree.

Orangutans are among the strongest of all apes. Although they may not be a threat to humans, they do pose a serious threat to humans. For example, orangutan males can lift two feet of palm trees and can easily carry 66 lb (30 kg) of weight. The orangutan can also lift more than five hundred kilograms of weight.

Unlike most other apes, orangutan males seldom engage in physical fights with each other. They are solitary and seldom initiate fights and rarely use their strength to hurt humans. However, unlike humans, orangutan males are seven times stronger than the average human. Their arms, legs, and arms are extremely strong and powerful. They are able to withstand their body weight even during the swinging motion.

Orangutan arms are the strongest among all apes. Unlike humans, orangutan arms can support seven times their body weight. The orangutan’s legs are shorter than its arms, and its body weight is distributed evenly between its legs. A male orangutan’s arm muscles are also longer than its hips. Despite their short legs, orangutan males’ arms are not as strong as a human’s.

Orangutan hands are larger than those of human males. This gives them a big grip and a powerful grip, and the thumb and fingers are opposite each other. An orangutan’s grip strength is four times greater than a human’s, which makes them four times more powerful. The strength and speed of their hands are what make them so dangerous. They also have large, slender jaws.
