**** More specifically, it's implied that ''Megaprimatus'' is a type of gigantopithecine, and probably a historically recent arrival on Skull Island.

Added DiffLines:
*** Keep in mind that our knowledge of gorilla physiology and behavior has grown significantly since 1933. When the original movie was made, people thought gorillas were vicious killers who ate meat and raped women, so Kong was more of a villain; in the 2005 version, he is more objectively an antivillain or antihero, is herbivorous, and is more directly protective of Ann.

** The 2005 version explicitly shows Kong nibbling on a bamboo. However, in the 1933 and 1976 versions, his belly is not as large, so in those versions he might be an omnivore like a chimpanzee (which would make the human sacrifices to him much more justified).

Presumably its bright light had been keeping them cowering in their burrows until then ... except the ''Carnictis'' worms that eat the cook don't even have eyes. So why did they hesitate?

** Lots of trees, porbably. [[ShownTheirWork The animators gave him a herbivore's large belly]], so it's likely he's still vegetarian like real gorillas.

*** The companion natural history book depicts the natives as living off shellfish, seagull eggs, seaweed and fish. The good news is, they don't eat one another; the ''bad'' news is that, while the largest Skull Island predators can't cross the wall to get at them, there are quite a few smaller predatory species (like that lizard-thing the ''V. rex'' was eating) along the coast that do.

*** Even a woman who snuck away from Kong's den wouldn't have much chance to make it back to the village alive, assuming they'd actually let her return. Some of the bodies "torn limb from limb" may have tried to climb down the cliffside, slipped, and died; others might have even committed suicide, if they knew they could never go home and would only die a painful death from Kong's clumsy manhandling and/or predators sneaking into the cave. When Kong found their lifeless bodies, he poked and tugged at them the same way he did, the dead ''V. rex'', only human corpses aren't as sturdy as dead carnosaurs.
