Quadruped Assignement at The Animation Workshop with Sabor from Tarzan

Name: Glacechu

Category: the Snow Mouse Pokemon

Type: Electric/Ice

Height: 2′08

Weight: 67lbs

Body Build: Quadruped, but can walk bipedal

Glacechu are sensitive Pokemon and tend to be easily hurt. It is advised that harsh trainers don’t care for these Pokemon, in fear of them getting frozen to death or even severely electrocuted. However, these Pokemon can be very sweet, it can just be complicated to break the ice with Glacechu. Older trainers love Glacechu due to their gentleness.

Heeeeere it is! Our very last project in the first year at Gobelins, a quadruped walk/run cycle + “graphic interpretation.” I did a hanuman langur running and then interpreted it with a lot of color.

Huge thanks to @mikokura for letting me use his track Hot Trot. It was so much fun to work with and it is now also the only thing I hear in my brain on repeat.

You can find more of his music HERE.

Bigfoot Has A Big Problem … In Bed

We just might finally know why Bigfoot is always hiding: He’s embarrassed.

You figure an ape-man with famously big feet would be well endowed in other areas. But we sit down with Bigfoot-hunting primatologist Natalia Reagan on the HuffPost Weird News Podcast, and she has a theory why Bigfoot might be a big disappointment with the ladies.

Reagan, who was featured on Spike’s “10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty,” says Bigfoot might be big and scary, like a gorilla, but gorillas also have a small penis – less than 2.5 inches.

“If you want to know about Bigfoot’s wang, you really should understand the wangs of other primates that you think Bigfoot is like,” said Reagan, who is also an anthropologist. “If you think Bigfoot is a large-bodied primate, like a gorilla or an orangutan – and a lot of Squatchers think Bigfoot is a descendant of gigantopithecus (or giganto-dick-ecus, if you want) – gorillas and orangutans actually have a quite small manhood.”

Pound for pound, humans have bigger penises than other primates. Some believe that’s because humans walk on two legs, and at some point in the evolutionary adventure, genital size became an attractive quality in a mate.

Gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans tend to walk more on four legs, so they’re not really advertising the size of their sex organs.

Plus, if Bigfoot does exist, Reagan says, “It would have a small dick and a penis bone, called the baculum. Humans do not have this literal boner, whereas a lot of primates have these bones in their dicks.”

Of course, just because some people believe in Bigfoot, that doesn’t mean he/she/it exists. We can only guess what this legendary beast is really like. However, evolutionary science might help us form some educated opinions.

As a scientist who tries to teach through entertainment, that’s what Reagan is really after – to get people thinking.

“Many Squatchers say that Bigfoot has two modes of locomotion: quadrupeds and bipeds. I always say to them, ‘Make a choice, because if you’ve ever seen a quadruped try to walk on two legs, like a chimp upright walking, they can do it but they’re slow, they move funny, it’s not a preferred gait; whereas, you try to get on all fours, as a human, you can do it, but it’s gonna be uncomfortable – you can’t maintain that gait.”

So, if there’s a bottom line here, Bigfoot’s penis size would depend on if he’s more humanlike or apelike.

Not surprisingly, any discussion about human penis size can easily turn to testicles.
