The Koolakamba or Kooloo-Kamba is a purported hybrid species of chimpanzees and gorillas. This alleged hybrid ape species has been reported in Africa as early as the mid 19th century. No empirical evidence has been found to substantiate the existence of the creature. The Koolakamba was referenced in the mid-19th century in French work by Franquet (1852, as cited by Shea, 1984) and in some descriptive work of Paul Du Chaillu from 1860, 1861, 1867, and 1899, some of which was republished in 1969 (Explorations and Adventures in Equatorial Africa).

  • Le koolakamba ou kooloo-Kamba est un supposé hybride de chimpanzés (genre Pan) et de gorilles (genre Gorilla). Les premières mentions de cet animal africain datent du milieu du XIXe siècle, mais aucune preuve empirique n'a jamais été trouvée pour justifier son existence. L'émission de cette hypothèse reflète plus vraisemblablement la méconnaissance, par les zoologistes de l'époque, de la variation morphologique inter-spécifique chez ces grands singes que l'existence d'une hybridation récente entre ces deux genres de primates. Chez le chimpanzé, en particulier, les individus de certaines populations sont plus grands et à la peau plus sombre que la plupart des premiers chimpanzés ramenés en Europe.
