The ‘Apeman of the Amazon’: 75-year-old picture sweeps internet but does it show man’s missing link . . .
or the work of a very good make-up artist?
Could these pictures dated from the 1930s of a supposed apeman found in the jungles of Brazil be proof for the much sought after missing link? His giant lips and furrowed brow and awkward monkey-like gait appear to be simian and the Dutch magazine Het Leven which published them in 1937 certainly seemed convinced, describing the pictures as those of a mystery apeman.
