While enjoying the totally fictional King Kong remake, I wondered if I were to get funding to find the real Skull Island with its giant gorilla, where would I look? Climate has something to do with animal size, such as the largest bears are found in the arctic and the smallest bears live in the tropics. But living on an island makes for small wooly mammoths and large rodents. Besides, great apes tend to be mostly vegetarian and would more likely be found in rain forests than in deserts or swamps. Any suggestions?
