A primate of a family (Pongidae) that comprises the great apes. See also hominid.
- If a wild crow placed in a laboratory can make a tool by bending a coathanger to get a piece of food out of a narrow-necked bottle, a gorilla, granted not the genius of the pongids but smarter than most birds, anyway, can bang things with sticks.
- While this view was made specifically in reference to post-Flood humans, the principle could equally apply to other forms of life, including pongids.
