Couple points about monky vs. CG the chimp: CG is seen brachiating throughout in the book. A monkey can brachiate but can not rotate the arm in a complete circle so as to brachiate. More importantly you would not see a monkey be able to hold a hand and walk because of the design difference in the shoulder. A monky does not walk on the knuckle but on the palm and CG either walks biped or on the knuckle further evidence that he is a chimp. The most obvious one is no tail but also the fact that he has great ape features in his hands and feet.
